Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs left-back Tsepo Masilela admits there was no expectation for him to be nominated for a PSL award.

Read: PSL Team of the Season

According to the Kaizer Chiefs website, Masilela says that winning trophies is a team thing and that is all he had his focus on.

Masilela was not nominated for the PSL awards, which will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on Sunday, May 17.

“Winning trophies is a team thing,” said Masilela.

“A league title is not won by individuals, it’s about the team. We all won together.

“To be honest, I didn’t expect to be nominated for a PSL award. I am therefore not at all disappointed.

“For me, winning the league is the ultimo.”

Amakhosi captain Mashamaite has been nominated for four awards: PSL Footballer of the Season, Absa Premiership Players’ Player of the Season, Absa Premiership Defender of the Season and the MTN8 Last Man Standing.

Followed on the heels is Mashamaite’s partner in central defence, Erick ‘Tower’ Mathoho, who is nominated for three awards: PSL Footballer of the Season, Absa Premiership Players’ Player of the Season and Absa Premiership Defender of the Season.

Other players nominated are George Maluleka and Mandla Masango (both for the MTN8 Last Man Standing), Willard Katsande (Absa Premiership Midfielder of the Season), Stuart Baxter (Absa Premiership Coach of the Season) and David Zulu (Absa-lutely Awesome Goal), although he scored the goal when he was still with Chippa United.

“I will rout for Masha and Tower to win the main awards,” concludes Masilela, “they both had excellent seasons.”
