Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns Zane Moosa insisted that the Bidvest Wits and Ajax Cape Town game showed how football can be unpredictable.

The Urban Warriors played to a 1-0 [2-1 aggregate] win against the Clever Boys seeing them face Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8 Cup final.

Moosa, who has also played for Amakhosi, said that the red card awarded to Siyabonga Nhlapo was a huge blow for them as a team and but praised them for dominating during most of the game.

The Bafana Bafana veteran also praised Wits’ goalkeeper Moneeb Josephs for saving his team throughout the match with the number of saves he made.

“Sjoe. That game really showed how anything can change at any given time,” he told Sport24.

“I mean football is unpredictable just like life. 

“Wits was dominant the whole time until that incident with the penalty and red card; that change the complexity of the game, until then Wits was really on the ball and I don’t they even created any chances. 

“They didn’t score at that time but that red card moment was a double blow for them as they ended up being ten men down. 

“In my opinion I don’t think it should have gone that far but it happened anyway. 

“That was a really game changing moment and everything just went Ajax’s way, unexpectedly. 

“Throughout the match I still think Moeneeb Josephs was the man of the match; he had a number of good saves including the penalty. 

“Ajax is better team going forward,” he concluded.
