Chiefs humbled Sports 4-0 in their Nedbank Cup Last 32 clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday courtesy of a hat-trick from Siphelele Mthembu and a Katlego Mphela strike.

Despite enduring a massive humiliation, Mudau remained proud of his team as he hinted that it was a learning experience for them.

“I’m very proud of the boys, they played very well,” said Mudau.

“Even though we have realised that we didn’t have the experience to match the Kaizer Chiefs players.

“Chiefs were too superior for them, but at least they tried their best.

“They did well especially in the first half, they contained them.

“Unfortunately, lack of fitness was very evident in the second half where our concentration lapsed.

“We were losing everything in the middle of the park because our players were getting tired.

“But overall, I’m really proud of the boys and this was a learning experience for them and hopefully they will use it when we return to our league games."
