Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has congratulated his fellow nominees after being named Goalkeeper of the Season at the annual Premier Soccer League awards ceremony this past Sunday.
The Uganda international played a crucial role in helping the Brazilians lift their fourth successive DStv Premiership title and to reach the quarter-finals of the Caf Champions League.
Onyango was crowned Goalkeeper of the Season after he kept 15 clean sheets in 25 league appearances during the 2020-21 season.
However, Onyango refuses to take credit for the individual award and insists everyone at Sundowns should be credited with his achievement.
‘First of all, I would like to thank the PSL and, of course, DStv, for rewarding me with the Goalkeeper of the Season award,’ Onyango told his club’s media department.
‘Congratulations to the nominees who were competing with me. You guys pushed me so hard and, for me, you guys have done fantastic as well.’
Over the course of the season, Onyango managed to keep a total of 18 clean sheets from 34 appearances across all competitions, while also walking away with the Golden Glove award in the PSL.
