Each and every season when it is ending, PSL give best performers some awards. Those awards include coach of the season award, top goal scorer award, player of the season award, players player of the season award and etc.
This season, Mamelodi Sundowns FC goalkeeper Ronwern Williams is expected to take home a goalkeeper of the season award. Some people also believe he must be given a player of the season award.
When it comes to best coach of the season, some people believe Rhulani Mokwena must be awarded that award. While some still believe Arthur Zwane of Kaizer Chiefs FC deserve that best coach of the season.
Sekhukhune United head coach Brandon Truter has voiced his opinion on who should be the recipient of the Coach of the Season award.
Most of the DStv Premiership clubs have three games to play before the season comes to an end. With the awards ceremony set to take place after the Nedbank Cup final, the Coach of the Season award is one of the most-anticipated.
Rhulani Mokwena comes to mind to many after leading his side to the DStv Premiership glory with seven games to spare.
However, if Orlando Pirates win the Nedbank Cup, Jose Riveiro would come into the picture having guided his side to the MTN8 triumph earlier this season.
Truter says Mokwena deserves the award.
BRANDON TRUTER BACKS RHULANI MOKWENA FOR COACH OF THE SEASON AWARD
“I think the coach of the season should be Rhulani for what he has achieved [with Mamelodi Sundowns],” said Truter.
“Champions League and also in the league as well, winning it by such a big margin. His team is playing such fantastic football as well.”
‘Brakkies’, as he’s well-known, was asked whether he felt he should be considered for the ward after leading AmaZulu to the MTN8 semi-final and Sekhukhune to the Nedbank Cup semi-final.
He admitted that he was outshone and doesn’t see himself receiving the honour.
‘OTHER COACHES DESERVE IT MORE THAN ME’
“Yeah, it’s also nice being a coach taking two teams in one season to a semi-final,” he added.
“Mind you [when] AmaZulu went to the final, Romain Folz didn’t score any goals, so I don’t know how we got to the final.
“So, yeah we will try with Sekhukhune, we have a midweek game and we have that game to look forward to as well.
“And hopefully we’ll get to the final, it’s the first in the history [of Sekhukhune].
“In terms of coach of the season, I think with my expectations, my beliefs and my objectives, wanting to achieve, I think there are other coaches that deserve it more than me.”
What are your thoughts? Kaizer Chiefs FC head coach Arthur Zwane has won nothing this season, his team failed to lift MTN8 trophy, also failed to win the league or atleast finish on the position two.
Rhulani Mokwena already won the league even before it ends officially. His side also failed to win MTN8, Nedbank cup after getting eliminated.
