Polokwane - National First Division outfit Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane issued a strong message to all Nedbank Cup semi-finalists.
Baroka continued their impressive fairytale story when they defeated cross town rivals, Polokwane City, in the quarter-finals of the R7m competition at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The match ended 2-0 courtesy of Albert Mothupa and Collins Makgaka first-half strikes.
Baroka will now face the rejuvenated SuperSport United away from home in the last four while Orlando Pirates will take on Free State Stars in the other semi-final.
Thobejane says the Limpopo based outfit are not bothered who they play as they are thinking of lifting the silverware at the end of the Premiers Soccer League season.
“We have done so well in the competition up to this stage,” said Thobejane.
“And at this stage I’m not concerned about who we face next at all.
“But let me tell you this, whoever we face in the semi-final must know that Baroka FC are going all the way to the final.
“We don’t care who we are going to play against but what we know is that we’ll be in the final and no one will stop us.
“And in the final, whoever our opponent would be must also know that we are going to win this cup.
“The Nedbank cup is ours and we are going to win it for the people of Limpopo and our Chief.
“We want to take the trophy to our Chief at Ga-Mphahlehle, so all the three semi-finalists must be aware of this as from now.”
Baroka have eliminated three Absa Premiership teams, Golden Arrows, Chippa United and Rise and Shine, so far in the 32-team tournament and they will be looking to continue with the momentum against Matsatsantsa.
The venues and dates for the semi-finals are yet to be confirmed.
