Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Rashid Sumaila has been awarded the prize as the best foreign player in the league in Kuwait after helping Al Qadsia to the Kuwait Premier League title last month.
The 23-year-old, who was at Sundowns for two seasons but only played only one of them, was cited for his role in the Kuwaiti champions conceding the least number of goals for the first time in the club’s history.
Sumaila left Sundowns at the end of last season, having been sidelined because the club did not register him.
He did make 17 starts for Sundowns in the 2013-14 Premier Soccer League campaign having joined the Brazilians from Asante Kotoko.
Mohamed Awal, who left Maritzburg United around 18 months ago for Al Shahab in Saudi Arabia, is now chasing league honours in Morocco with Raja Casablanca, who beat leaders Wydad Casablanca 3-0 on Sunday.
The club are three points behind their neighbours who also have a game in hand. Wydad have four more matches left to play while Raja have three.
The 28-year-old Awal has missed just six games for his club all season.
