Mokwena says Jali is shoo-in as season winner

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena is surprised that the debate on who should walk away with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Footballer of the Season award hasn’t started yet as he feels Andile Jali should already be the talk of the town.

Mokwena feels Jali has been consistent this season and why the debate on who is likely to win the Footballer of the Year hasn’t started surprises him.“What’s important is that we continue to work in this way. And if you continue to work in this way, then maybe the debate will start because I’m very surprised that with AJ’s performances with Mshishi’s [Themba Zwane] consistency and performances, we haven’t started the debate of the Footballer of the Season. I’m very surprised,” Mokwena told the club media department yesterday.
