Cape Town - Bidvest Wits midfielder Thabang Monare has revealed that winning the MTN8 title did not heal the sting of getting relegated from the Premiership with Jomo Cosmos last season.

Monare captured his first piece of silverware in the top fight after the Clever Boys thrashed Mamelodi Sundowns in the top-eight final at the weekend.

A brace from Daine Klate and a Eleazar Rodgers goal secured a comfortable win for Gavin Hunt's side at the Mbombela Stadium.

Monare admits it still pains him to have suffered relegation with Ezenkosi in heartbreaking fashion on the last day of the 2015/16 campaign.

"It felt so good, I can't even explain the joy that I felt, especially getting my first silverware or medal in my home province Mpumalanga," the 27-year-old told KickOff.

"I don't even have words for the joy that I still feel even now, but that still doesn't erase the fact that I will be [forever] be on the list of players that got Cosmos relegated."
