Former Zimbabwe and Caps United player, Alois Bunjira has tipped Dynamos defender Ocean Mushure to walk away with the Player of the Season Award.
Bunjira reckons that the Warriors skipper and left-back, Mushure has done well in the current Zimbabwean premier Soccer League campaign.
The 42-year-old retired midfielder also plied his trade in the South African Premier Soccer League for sides like Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidivest Wits.
Bunjira was part of the all-conquering and dominant Caps squad from 1996 to 1999, before moving to South Africa.

Speaking to News Day website, he said Mushure stands head and shoulders above the rest.
“I think Ocean Mushure has done well thus far. He had a great 2017 COSAFA tournament and continues to do well for Dynamos,” said Bunjira.
“(Christian) Ntouba will definitely challenge him if he does not go abroad. I think (Terrence) Dzvukamanja from Ngezi Platinum and Nhamo Lameck of Triangle have been consistent this season as well and will challenge for that top gong..
“Had Dennis Dauda stayed at Caps United, he would have been in the running. He was having a great time at Caps United.
“Phineas Bhamusi would also challenge if he could chip in with a few goals for Caps United.
"I think (Dominic) Chungwa left it too late to fight for the top award, but I am sure he will be among the top 11.
"Too bad Prince Dube left early. Rhinos’ decline has also affected Jameson Mukombwe.”
