Best PSL Top Scorers of All Time: Who gets the most Golden Boots?

In this article, we guide you through the highest scoring record in South Africa's top division since the start of a new era in the league in 1996/97. The Manyathela Golden Boots Award.

 It is named after the former Orlando Pirates forward who died in a car accident in August 2003 shortly after he scored 18 goals and finished first on the scoring list.

From the beginning of the PSL era 1996/97, we saw an exciting fight for the league's most goalscorer. 

 SuperSport United's Bradley Grobler is the current PSL Golden Boot holder, scoring 16 goals last season. 


 Who has the most golden boots? 

 Former Zambian international Collins Mbezuma has been named the PSL top scorer twice. During the 2004/05 season with Kaizer Chiefs, he scored his first 25 goals to win the award. 

 These 25 goals are the highest scored by a player in a season. 

Mbesuma remains a unique player who has won the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot Prize more than once. 


 Hard to reach 20 goal Mark ?

 Nomvethe has passed 20 goal mark during the 2011/12 season. 

Other players who have surpassed this number include Wilfred Mugeyi, the first Golden Boot winner of the PSL era. He scored 22 goals for the Umtata Bush Bucks. 

 Pollen Ndlanya scored 21 goals for the Chiefs in the 1998/99 season and Mbezuma later scored 25 goals.

Which countries are hosting the Leslie Manyatela Award? 

 South Africa produced 15 Golden Boot winners and Zambia produced 5 athletes. 

 Star Dennis Lota, Christopher Katohgo, James Chaman and Mondond Musonsa's Mbesuma, also filed a scorer diagram. 

 Two players from Zimbabwe won the golden boot award. The three players are Gilbert Mushangazike, and knowledge Musona.
