Accolades Keep Coming As Serero Flies Mzansi Flag High

Fresh off being named the Al Jazira’s best foreign player, Bafana Bafana international Thulani Serero received yet another accolade in the United Arab Emirates.

To say Serero has been setting the scene in the UAE ablaze is an understatement.

The midfielder’s change of position from attacking midfield to a deep-lying playmaker has paid dividends, with the former Ajax Cape Town man receiving widespread acclaim for his performances in the oil-rich country.

On Monday night, the 31-year-old was named in the prestigious UAE Pro League Awards Dream Team for the 2020/21 season, where he was duly acknowledged for his fine campaign.

The midfielder made 26 appearances for coach Marcel Kaizer’s team as he led them to the UEA Gulf League title – their first in four years.

The Soweto-born star was also unfortunate to miss out on another award, having been nominated for the Best Foreigner award; however, he lost out to Joao Pedro of Baniyas who was crowned the winner.

The latest accolade comes on the back of being crowned Al Jazira Club’s best foreigner as well as being handed a new three-year deal, that will keep him at the club until the 2023 season.

Serero has been a revelation for the Abu Dhabi-based outfit since moving to the UAE from the Netherlands, where he joined Al Jazira from Vitesse two seasons ago.
