De Sa: We deserve to win it

Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa believes the MTN8 Cup final win over Kaizer Chiefs was no more than they deserve, claiming it was the best he has ever seen his side play.

Nathan Paulse's second-half penalty would eventually separate the sides at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, where the Urban Warriors matched their billing as Premiership leaders with a dominant display against the now-dethroned Wafa Wafa champions.

Ajax had to come through Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits on their way to lifting their first piece of silverware since 2008, while the cup success also saw De Sa ended a personal run of five successive final defeats.

And, speaking after the game, a clearly delighted coach said: "I thought we were good value, especially in the first half. That's as good as I've seen us play. We really controlled the game and it was all a bit one-sided.

"We knew it was going to change in the second half and that they were going to come at us more; they are a good side and obviously they are going to have some half chance.

"But overall I think we deserved to win it. You beat Pirates, Chiefs and Wits... I think you deserve the cup."
