Cape Town - Wits CEO Jose Ferreira has insinuated that the team will not receive a cut of the R8 million prize money from their MTN8 final triumph.

The university thrashed Mamelodi Sundowns 3-0 in the final at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

The title win was the first for coach Gavin Hunt since joining the club from SuperSport United.

Wits have invested heavily in top quality players in the last few seasons and it has taken six years to see a return on investment.

"What was important for us was not bonuses but what was important was winning something for the board that has been behind the team through thick and thin for the past four years."
