Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes Uruguayan Gaston Sirino can win the Player of the Season gong in the Premiership in 2018/19. 

Sundowns began the defence of their PSL crown when they drew 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria. 

Despite making a mistake which led to Chiefs' first goal, Mosimane takes the view that the 27-year-old deserves praise for the rich potential of his overall performance. 

In addition, the Brazilians mentor highlighted the displays made by striker Jeremy Brockie as well as recent recruit Lyle Lakay. 

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Jeremy Brockie showed that he is trying this season and he is a good player. 

"Lyle Lakay, he showed good energy. We just have to correct one or two things. He must understand the way we play because he comes from an environment where they played differently. 

"Sirino is coming up well. If he carries on playing the way that he plays, he could be player of the year."
