Throwback Thursday: Chiefs Embarrassed, Bucs Reign Supreme

In 2011 It Was Orlando Pirates Lifting The Nedbank Cup Trophy

As we celebrate 10 years of the Nedbank Cup, here are Soccer Laduma we’re looking back at the various winners of the competition since 2008.
This time we’re taking a glance into the past to the first time that Orlando Pirates lifted the Nedbank trophy, when they were victorious under the guidance of Ruud Krol.
One of the biggest stories of the 2010/11 edition of the competition was when the Buccaneers’ rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, were knocked out of the competition by Baroka – then a Vodacom League side – meaning that they had been booted out by lower league opposition three years in a row.
It was Thobani Mncwango, now at Polokwane City, who scored the winner on that day, with the Amakhosi being eliminated in the quarterfinals.
Bucs, however, had a far better tournament as they beat the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Free State Stars on the way to the final, claiming the trophy with a 3-1 win over Black Leopards thanks to Isaac Chansa and a Thulasizwe Mbuyane.
Andile Jali was the man who lifted the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament award, while his teammate, Tlou Segolela, was named as Young Player of the Tournament.
