Mamelodi Sundowns’ number one, who has been nominated for two CAF awards, was thankful of the support he’s received from the club.
“I want to thank all the supporters and of course the club and the PSL for helping me to be nominated for African Player of the Year. Myself, Mshishi and the coach being nominated really means a lot to us and the club so thank you very much.”
“Most important are the teammates who have been able to help me get this nomination because without my team I can’t do anything,” Onyango said as quoted on Sundowns’ official website.
Mamelodi Sundowns have three of their men nominated for a prestigious CAF award, with Themba Zwane also receiving a nomination for African Interclubs Player of the Year and Pitso Mosimane for Men’s Coach Of The Year.
“I want to congratulate Denis Onyango, Themba Zwane and Percy Tau who is still our boy, for being nominated, they’ve done well. Themba Zwane was top goal scorer, he had a fantastic year. I am humble and I appreciate being acknowledged,” Mosimane also added.
