Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Khama Billiat has thanked his team-mates for pushing him throughout the campaign.

Billiat played an instrumental part in the Brazilians stellar season, where they clinched the Absa Premiership title and Telkom Knockout Cup.

His efforts were rewarded at the PSL awards ceremony, held at Emperors Palace on Monday.

The Zimbabwean international walked away with the Absa Premiership Players' Player, Midfielder of the Season and Footballer of the Season awards.

Billiat has described the 2015/16 campaign as one of the best in his career, before adding that he could not have reached the heights without the support of the best players around him at Chloorkop.

"It feels great [to win to the awards]," he told reporters. "Every player would like to win stuff like this at the end of the season.

"I am so excited - I don't know what to say. This is the best season ever in my career. I think it's because I didn't get serious injuries and managed to stay on the field more than before.

"I have been working hard and the players have been helping me. They played a big role to bring the best out of me; I am around very good players at Sundowns."
