Congratulations are in order for Masandawana for winning the Nedbank Cup against Marumo Gallants to complete their treble this season. Sundowns defeated Gallants by 2-1 in extra time, thanks to goals scored by Peter Shalulille and Thapelo Morena to make sure that the Brazilians walk away victorious at Royal Bafokeng Stadium. Then the Gallants goal was netted by Sede Junior Dion, unfortunately they had to to play with ten men after Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo got a red card in the 111th minute. This did distabilize the Limpopo-based outfits as they thought that they could put Downs under pressure, unfortunately it wasn't their night.
Now, Kaizer Chiefs fans have came out to state that the Nedbank Cup final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Gallants didn't get a lot of hype and attention. As most finals do within the country, but this particular one got sidelined by most fans following Chiefs massive announcement on Thursday morning. Even the media publications were focused about what's happening at Amakhosi and that meant the Nedbank Cup will take a back seat. What Chiefs announced was that their new head coach will Arthur Zwane as he'll be taking over permanently from Stuart Baxter. Meanwhile, Dillon Sheppard will be his assistant coach for the next three years. This has been the biggest football scoop this year thus far in the DStv Premiership. "Nedbank final overshadowed by Kaizer Chiefs developments 😜," said @Thizozo8 on Twitter.
The Chiefs hopefuls were having some banter on Twitter with regards to the Nedbank Cup.
"I forgot that there is a cup final happening this weekend lol," said @_Bernard 17 on Twitter.
"That's Kaizer Chiefs for you, it's called being the biggest Footballing Brand in Africa, with a long-term drought may I add, almost everyone wanna know abt its developments," said @HolbyMontjane on Twitter.
