JOHANNESBURG – Kaitano Tembo preached humility after SuperSport United got the better of their cross-town rivals Mamelodi Sundowns to advance to the final of the MTN8 for the third year in a row.
The 2-0 win on Wednesday night ensured that SuperSport got to the final with a 3-1 win on aggregate, setting up a clash with Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium on 5 October.
What would have made this victory sweeter for Tembo is that it came against his mentor Pitso Mosimane - someone who coached him at SuperSport and helped him find his feet in his coaching career.
“I have history with coach Pitso,” Tembo said.
“He is someone that I respect and know personally as a coach. He is someone who is very passionate about his game and his work. It’s pleasing to have won this match, especially because of how Sundowns have been dominating us over the years. Derbies are always key, and in our quest to turn things around and be competitive - we have to do well in this game.
