Now, Matsatsantsa coach Kaitano Tembo says he does not want to go through the same feeling of walking away with a downturned face full of disappointment.

“It was very painful to lose it on penalties, we could have snatched it, we don’t want to go through that again,” said Tembo.

The Matsatsantsa A Pitori mentor revealed what winning his maiden trophy as a head coach would mean to him as he has enjoyed cup success as an assistant coach at United.

“Winning this cup will mean a lot to me because I will be able to show the coaches at development level that if you work hard you will get an opportunity to coach in the final. I look at where I come from, I have gone through development structures of the club and I have been an assistant coach and I want to inspire those who are down there because it is not easy to get these opportunities”
