Supporters Feel Kekana and Josephs Robbed At Awards

The annual PSL Awards took place last night. There were few surprises in the general proceedings of the evening. There was a large suspicion league champions Mamelodi Sundowns would sweep the awards, and so they did… The question remains, though: If the supporters had the final say, who would have actually walked away with the awards?

There were very few raised eyebrows at the Footballer of the Season, Khama Billiat. Few in the land would contest that he was anything short of outstanding. We even discussed the prize money for the PSL's top goalscorer compared to the NFD's (the NFD top scorer this year walked away with double the prize money) in Supporters Club earlier this week, and most supporters thought this was fair considering there were more goals scored in the NFD this season.

However, what did get the supporters reeling were the Midfielder and Goalkeeper of the Season awards. The midfielder accolade went to the one and only Billiat, and no supporter doubts that he was excellent, but some wonder whether, after already having two awards, that one could have gone to a very deserving Hlompho Kekana. Not to mention the fact that some are confused as to whether Billiat should even be considered a midfielder at all…

"Useless awards. Hlompho Kekana deserved Midfielder of the Season award." – Hlasela Khosi

"Kekana was robbed." – mtho4Downz

"Hlompho was the king of the middle of the park." – Papaagopehesa

Other supporters have also raised concerns that Moeneeb Josephs was not voted as the Goalkeeper of the Season, considering he had the most clean sheets this campaign. It seems odd that there is no Striker of the Season category because the highest goalscorer automatically gets this award. Should the same not apply to the goalkeeper with the most clean sheets then?

Some may argue that Dennis Onyango was the goalkeeper of a championship team and therefore deserved the award. However, Josephs, being the keeper of a non-championship team, arguably had more work cut out for him and still stood firm. Furthermore, he played all the games for Wits this season, something Onyango cannot claim.

What do you think of the awards? Were they fair? Did Josephs and Kekana deserve something?
