Potential Contenders for Player of the Season in the DSTV premiership 2021/2022 season |Opinion

Well, we all want a player from our teams to win the player of the season award which is currently held by Peter Shalulile. Shalulile has been superb and as a Kaizer Chiefs fan, I hate it when my team faces Sundowns with him on the field because I know he will score at least one goal.

He will be looking to defend his status and then if he helps Mamelodi Sundowns to defend the league then he will surely win the player of the season award again.

Mamelodi Sundowns has many top-class players who will be looking to win the award, Themba Zwane will be pushing himself to excel and win it for the second time in his career, Sirino is another one who will try by all means to impress other clubs since he wanted to leave Sundowns. Lakay is an excellent player and if he doesn’t win it this season, he won’t retire without winning it. Erasmus, Kutumela, and Jali are some of the possible winners if they work harder this season.

With rumors that Thembinkosi Lorch might be out with an injury until next year, it’s hard to see him competing for any individual accolades unless if he scores three goals and made three assists in every match. Pirates players are not the same without him so I don’t see any players from pirates being in the race for the award.

Amazulu has Memela and Augustine Mulenga who were great last season, if they work harder in training and in matches, they will surely be considered for the award because stats matter in these awards. With Benni Still at the helm, they surely do have a chance to win the league and if they do, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible for one of them to win the player of the season award.

At Kaizer Chiefs, anyone can win the accolade because Mashamaite is the last defender to win it and he was playing for Kaizer Chiefs. This means it’s possible for Mathoho to win it under the guidance of Baxter, he is the one who turned him into a gem and he’s back to improve Mathoho’s abilities, so he’s a possible winner even though it would take a lot for him to win it. Billiat, Dolly, Alexander, Nange, Frosler, and maybe Castro if he comes in and converts the chances that Billiat and Dolly will create for him, will surely be the contenders.
