MANDLA Masango is the surprise leader in the KICK OFF’s Footballer of the Season preliminary vote.

The Kaizer Chiefs midfielder came in for some stick following Kaizer Chiefs’ CAF Champions League exit against Raja Casablanca on Sunday, when he missed two great chances to score.

However, he is well ahead on the voting, leading Kaizer Chiefs teammate Mulomuwandau Mathoho by 4 000 votes.

Polokwane City midfielder Cole Alexander is third, while two more Chiefs players, Tefu Mashamaite and Tsepo Masilela, complete the top five.

It seems the Orlando Pirates fans have not got voting yet, with Oupa Manyisa and Lehlohonolo Majoro way down on the list.

It’s important to note that the nominees have been decided taking into consideration their performances in the Absa Premiership and domestic cup competitions, as well as games for the national team during the Africa Cup of Nations, the qualifiers and friendlies.

The top eight come 9am on April 13 will then go into the final eight, from where the eventual winner will be voted for across, Kick Off Mobile, email and letters.
