Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane said that "everything went according to plan" after his side's 3-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout final on Wednesday night.
Goals from Leonard Castro and Thabo Nthethe gave 'Downs a two-goal lead before Chiefs were awarded two second-half penalties.
However, goalkeeper Denis Onyango kept out both spot-kicks brilliantly to keep his side in the contest.
Hlompho Kekana eventually added a third for 'Downs before Camaldine Abraw pulled one back for Amakhosi in stoppage time.
Mosimane picked out Teko Modise and Denis Onyango for special praise, while he also hailed his side's high-tempo play.
"Yeah, I think sometimes one player was speaking in the dressing room, he spoke about the myth that they said about Teko (Modise), that when Teko is playing in a team, that team doesn't win things," Mosimane said in his post-match interview.
"The players said the same thing that Sundowns have never beaten Chiefs in a cup final, coming back to the match.
"Everything went well, according to the plan. They were stronger on the play especially in the first half we knew they were overloaded, they had Shabba (Siphiwe Tshabalala), (Hendrick) Ekstein, (Reneilwe Letsholonyane) Yeye... when he came in they were overloaded.
"We knew we have to keep together and we have speed you know that and we have goals, as I said earlier, we could play with our speed.
"We harmed them with our speed. Denis Onyango, I think the whole story is on him, and the fouls inside the box.
"I don't want to talk about that (two penalties), I don't want to talk, I told you this year I'm not talking about anything.
"I need to keep money for my family, not going to talk. Everybody could see."
