Mokoena eyes Nedbank Cup success

Free State Stars General Manager Rantsi Mokoena says winning the Nedbank Cup Final would be something very special for the club.

Ea Lla Koto take on Maritzburg United in the final at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, kick-off 7pm.

Ahead of the clash, Mokoena said: “From the club’s point of view, for any team being in the final is important and it’s any club’s wish.

“For a club like Free State Stars who had a terrible past three seasons back to back, it is extra special.

“We are not just in the final, we are going there to win it, and the financial aspect to it will really help us a lot.”

He added: “I speak for Stars and I am sure with other clubs as well, the financial aspect of running the club is costly and immense, and certainly winning will go a long way in terms of where money injected to the club is concerned.

“It will be an honor to bring the trophy home especially in a small town like Bethlehem and for a guy like Paulus Masehe, who was born and bred in Qwaqwa where the team was formed.

“He (Masehe) played so many games for Stars it will really be special to bow out of football with a trophy.”
