Cape Town - Reneilwe ‘Yeye’ Letsholonyane has quickly brushed off his man of the match award after Kaizer Chiefs beat Mpumalanga Black Aces.

Yeye seemed a comfortable in the middle of the park as Chiefs brushed aside Aces 4-0 in a pulsating game to progress to the semi-finals of 2014 MTN8 Cup.

The 32-year-old scored the opener in the second minute paving the way for Mandla Masango to score his brace of goals and Kingston Nkhatha to score a scorcher in their first official game of the season.

“I am happy to be chosen as a man of the match, but all credit goes to my team-mates and the technical team. I wouldn't have won this without the teamwork,” Yeye told the club's official website.

“We are happy to win this game. This is a mark of a first step of our journey this season.”

Yeye revealed that they went into the game not knowing much about Clive Barker’s side but praises his team effort for their hard work.

“The scoreline looks like it was one way traffic but the game was not an easy one at all. We did what our coach and his Technical Team told us to do and it worked for us.”

“It boils down to the team effort. It is all planned from doing our defensive duties as a team and then attack from there on.”

The midfielder concluded by saying that results will come their way and urged Amakhosi fans to continue to support the team through good and tough times.

“To my team-mates, we still have a lot of work to do, we will stay humble and keep working hard.”

Amakhosi take on Free State Stars at 15:00 on Saturday, August 9 in their PSL opening encounter.

Will Kaizer Chiefs win the MTN8 Cup?
