Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) coach, Dylan Kerr, hailed his team for defeating Chippa United 1-0 to win the Nedbank Cup on Sunday evening in South Africa.
Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo’s early goal was all TTM needed to win the cup in their maiden season in the top-flight league of South Africa.
Kerr, formerly of Baroka and Black Leopards, described his players as heroes.
“Credit to everybody,” Kerr told SuperSport TV. “Credit to Vlad and his team. It’s a cup final. Ýou’ve got to dig in deep. We made mistakes in the second half to give them counter-attacks but then we defended like we should do.
“We defended like heroes. Credit to all the players and my staff. Credit to Mpho Maleka and DvD (David Mathebula), they’ve been brilliant. We’ve got our just reward and I think the chairman might phone me tonight and say congratulations.”
TTM emerged from the ashes of Bidvest Wits who sold their Premiership status.
