The Bafana Bafana striker was the recipient of four Premier Soccer League accolades at Gold Reef City this weekendMoroka Swallows striker Siyabonga Nomvethe attributes his success this season to hard work.
Nomvethe was the big winner at the 2012 PSL Awards held at Gold Reef City on Sunday night.
The striker went home with four awards after being voted as the PSL Footballer of the Season, PSL Player's Player of the Season, Player of the Season and the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot Award after his 20 goals.
"To be honest I was surprised to win the four awards, this was something I did not expect," Nomvethe told reporters.
"However, there is no secret to my success except hard work and when I play, I play to win. I will always remain proud of these achievements because it is something will show to my kids after I retire from football," he added.
At the age of 34, 'Bhele' says he has not made a decision when to retire from football but has words of encouragement to the youngsters.
"I have not yet made a decision when to retire but I guess as long as my legs still carry me I will continue playing. I want to encourage youngsters by saying that as long as you work hard nothing is impossible in life."
