With the conclusion of the 2018/19 PSL season, debate now starts surrounding various individual accolades

The Premier Soccer League have revealed all the nominees ahead of the 2019 PSL Awards that will be held in Durban.

In a season where Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates were vying for the top spot with the former succeeding on the final day of the season, it is only deserving that several players from both those clubs are inline to scoop up some of the season’s biggest awards.

Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana and teammate Themba Zwane are amongst the nominees for the PSL Footballer of the Year award alongside Orlando Pirates' star Thembinkosi Lorch. 

It is set to be a massive night for at least one of the three abovementioned players with the trio also nominated for the Player’s Player of the season and the Midfielder of the Season awards respectively.

Meanwhile, after successfully steering Sundowns to a record-extending ninth PSL title, head coach Pitso Mosimane is destined to be one of the favourites to be named Coach of the Season as he comes up against Bucs coach Milutin Sredojevic and Cape Town City mentor Benni McCarthy.
