ZIMBABWEAN goalkeeper Washington Arubi has been nominated for the Nedbank Cup Player of the tournament.
The 35-year-old is the only Zimbabwean player to feature in South Africa’s Premiership end of season awards this year after helping rank outsiders Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila clinch the Nedbank Cup.
The former Dynamos man, however, missed out nomination to the DStv Premiership Goalkeeper of the Year despite having raked up eight clean sheets so far.
That category will be a battle featuring the Mamelodi Sundowns veteran goalkeeper Denis Onyango, Sifiso Mlungwana of Golden Arrows and Veli Mothwa (AmaZulu).
The awards will take place on June 6 and will be broadcast live on the SuperSport PSL channel (202) and SABC.
Arubi was outstanding during the Nedbank tournament with four clean sheets from five games. He was the only Zimbabwean in the nominations that were unveiled this morning.
