Ask most Kaizer Chiefs supporters who has been the best forward player this season, and the answers might not include Pule Mmodi. His contribution has not been obvious, but he has been the most effective in terms of goals.


After a rather long transfer saga, the 31-year-old from Theunissen, Free State finally left Golden Arrows to join Kaizer Chiefs in July 2023. Mmodi, formally of Mangaung United and Uthongathi, earned his move to Naturena after 16 goals and five assists in 92 games for Abafana Bes’thende.

Facing the media after Kaizer Chiefs 1-1 draw against AmaZulu last week, coach Johnson was asked to name the best candidates. The Johannesburg-born coach believes Sundowns’ midfield general Teboho Mokoena and goalkeeper Ronwen Williams have been outstanding.

“The number one that comes to mind is Teboho Mokoena,” the Kaizer Chiefs coach said, as quoted by iDiski Times.

“And the other one is Ronwen Williams. They’ve taken the African Football League, they came [third] in CAF and they’ve done very, very well,” Johnson concluded.


Chatting to the media last month, Sundowns coach Rulani Mokwena also picked Williams, as well as Orlando Pirates’ Patrick Maswanganyi, as well as Mokoena and Mosa Lebusa.

“It is a difficult one because I think there has been an unorthodox front runner and that’s Ronwen Williams and it is unorthodox because we normally don’t consider goalkeepers to receive such awards,” Mokwena said via Sowetan.

“I’m talking about football culture worldwide. That’s why they started creating individual awards like the Golden Gloves awards for goalkeepers, because honestly, it’s an award that very seldom goes to the goalkeeper.”

Mokwena added to say that Williams’ goalkeeping is as excellent as his ability on the ball.

“When I look at Ronwen’s contribution this season to Sundowns, not only to goalkeeping but also to in-field play. In possessions, the way he tries to do things and from the level of consistency he has been head and shoulders above the rest.”

The Sundowns tactician said Maswanganyi also deserves a look-in.

“But there have been very good individual performances, a player like Patrick Maswanganyi deserves special mention because I have been watching and he is picking up towards the end of the season.

“I think Teboho Mokoena has been good once again. He is at a very good level. I think Mosa Lebusa has been excellent, this is my opinion. 

“He has been having an incredible season and some of the players that went to Bafana Bafana even before they went to Afcon, were excellent.

“If I was a judge, I would be biased and it would go to Sundowns player no doubt about that,” Mokwena concluded.
