Vipers striker Cesar Manzoki and coach Roberto Oliveira have been nominated for the Pilsner UPL Awards of the April.
The nomination is deserved, and is the latest proof for Vipers strength this season after the side recently won the league title with four games to spare.
Manzoki scored four goals and registered two assists in the five games he played.
The current league leading goal-scorer with 17 goals won this monthly accolade in December.
He will face stiff competition from KCCA FC striker Sadat Anaku and Onduparaka captain Shaban Muhammad.
Anaku scored three goals in the previously month, and notably netting a brace against Tooro United away from home.
Shaban scored six goals in four games he played, netting a hat trick against Police FC and a brace against Express at Wankuluku.
Meanwhile, Vipers Roberto Oliveira is nominated alongside Bright Stars’ Paul Kiwanuka and Onduparaka’s Dudu Bosco for the coach of the month award.
Oliveira, in his first term at Vipers, guided Vipers to their fifth title in Club history. He won all the five games in the month of April.
The Brazilian gaffer will fancy his chances to win this award once again having won it twice in the previous month of March and December last year.
Bright Stars Coach Paul Kiwanuka guided his side to three wins and drawn only once.
This good run has seen his side get out of the relegation area and they are currently seated in the 10th position on 30 points after 27 games to go.
For Dudu Bosco, he has seen Onduparaka win three and drawn only one game in four matches in April.
The Pilsner UPL awards are organised by Pilsner as the main Sponsors and are given out to the best coach and Player at the start of every month who go away with an accolade and Sh1m.
