After the eight exciting matches in the Carling Knockout Cup Round of 16, eight Premier Soccer League stars walked away with the much-talked about R100 000.
On Wednesday, TS Galaxy captain Mlungisi Mbunjana was the first player to walk home R100 000 richer thanks to the award based on the fans’ voting. His side stunned Mamelodi Sundowns in the penalty shootout beating them 5-4 to advance.
On Friday, Thembinkosi Lorch walked away R100 000 in his first appearance of the season, as Pirates made light work of Cape Town Spurs to advance.
On an action-packed Saturday, Khanyisa Mayo won the award despite Cape Town City losing 3-1 against Golden Arrows and the forward not being involved in any goal.
Iqraam Rayners picked up the award after Stellenbosch FC beat Chippa United 2-1 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, while Keagan Dolly won it on his return to Kaizer Chiefs. Amakhosi, though, didn’t have much else to celebrate after being knocked out by AmaZulu.
Late on Saturday, Jamie Webber won the accolade in his side’s 1-0 win over Royal AM.
On Sunday, Andile Jali won R100 000 despite Moroka Swallows losing 2-1 to Richards Bay, while Ndumiso Mabena won it in Polokwane City’s 4-1 thrashing of SuperSport United.
