Brilliant Khuzwayo: “This goes out to my mother, my late mother who passed away in 2006, this is why I am wearing number 16. When I was 16 years old she used to say, make me proud. When I was 16 she told me that.”

Vladimir Vermezovic: “I don’t think my players are scared of final games. I hope we are going to reach another final very soon, and we’ll see.”

Willard Katsande: “Coach always told me that I'm the engine of the team, I have to win every ball, I have to break down the opposition attacks so that we can attack so my job is to balance the team.”

Stuart Baxter: “I do think we can improve and if the players don't think that, then they won't be playing next week.”

Morgon Gould: “But we still need to cool down, you know. It's just one trophy in the league.”

Doctor Khumalo:  “We dominated the first 45 minutes, but we took the foot off the pedal in the second half, I don't know why the guys were parking the bus at the back, because we told them to take the game to Pirates.”

Bernard Parker: “Even if we played another 90 minutes, I don't think Orlando Pirates would have scored.”
