Where are the past five Premier Soccer League Footballers of the Season and where do they ply their trade now?
Over the past five seasons, the Footballer of the Season has only twice come from teams who did not lift the Absa Premiership title during that time.
Last season, Thembinkosi Lorch walked away with the prestigious award at the annual PSL ceremony, this after his stellar performances for the Buccaneers, who finished off in second position on the log.
Lorch is yet to regain his riveting form from last season, although Pirates have had a challenging campaign with three different head coaches.
In 2017/18, Percy Tau was handed the accolade for his influence in helping Mamelodi Sundowns lift the Absa Premiership trophy and thereafter made his way to Europe, joining up with Brighton and Hove Albion and then on loan to Club Brugge in Belgium.
The season before, Lebogang Manyama was named the Footballer of the Season after an outstanding season with Cape Town City in 2016/17 which was their inaugural campaign where they were under the mentorship of Eric Tinkler and finished off third in the league.
In 2015/16 Khama Billiat scooped the award during his time with Sundowns, where he formed part of the menacing ‘CBD’ trio which included Leonardo Castro and Keagan Dolly.
Domestically, the Zimbabwean won the Absa Premiership and Telkom Knockout trophy with Sundowns in that season. However, he is now with Chiefs as he looks to add yet another league title to his cabinet.
Tefu Mashamaite was named the Footballer of the Season in 2014/15, where he also lifted the Absa Premiership title and the MTN8 trophy with Chiefs at the time.
