Mamelodi Sundowns star player Themba Zwane was the biggest winner at the PSL awards evening after winning the much-coveted Footballer of the Season award on Thursday night.

Zwane finally won the prestigious award after years of being overlooked.

The 31-year-old walked away with R500 000 for clinching three awards: Footballer of the Season (R250 000), Player’s Player of the Season (R200 000) and Midfielder of the Season (R50 000).

Zwane was nominated alongside teammate Gaston Sirino, Peter Shalulile and Samir Nurkovic.
