A lone Gaston Sirino goal helped Mamelodi Sundowns to a domestic treble after they edged Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup final. Here’s how it played out …
“It was really a tough game for us,” said Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane after the match.
“I think Denis [Onyango] saved us, two chances in the first-half and the second-half but the game came out exactly the way we expected because of the pattern that they play.
“We had to frustrate them on that, not giving [Victor] Letsoalo and [Ndumiso] Mabena enough chance, then they resorted to long balls because they want to use the quick players, Potsane and them. Gaston [Sirino] can score difficult goals sometimes. I mean easy ones, in the first-half there he could have walked [it in] to be honest but ja treble, why not.”
