Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs defender Tefu Mashamaite has expressed his excitement after lifting the MTN8 trophy in the absence of skipper Itumeleng Khune.

Chiefs defeated their arch rivals, Orlando Pirates, 1-0 in the final at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban last weekend.

The Bochum-born central defender scored the only goal of the game to claim the R8m prize for his side.

The former Bidvest Wits skipper captained the Phefeni Glamour Boys for the first time since joining them in July 2011.

“It really meant a lot to me to lift the MTN8 trophy for Chiefs,” said Mashamaite.

“It was a good feeling and credit must go to God, my family and my team-mates.

“And also thanks to everyone who offered their support to us throughout the tournament.

“Indeed, this is one of the greatest moments of my career.

“I have worked hard for this success.

“We played as a team and also won as a team and the month of September has always been good for me.”
