How Chiefs Embarrassment Made History For Galaxy…

Kaizer Chiefs' embarrassing loss  against TS Galaxy last night made history in South Africa, and it's not a record that the Amakhosi will want to remember.

Check out all the scenes from a history-making Nedbank final in the gallery above!

Galaxy became the first team from outside the South African top-flight to win the Nedbank Cup when they beat Chiefs 1-0 at Moses Mabhida Stadium last night, with the Glamour Boys now the only top-tier side to have been beaten by a lower division side in the final.

The Amakhosi head coach, Ernst Middendorp, referred to the loss as 'definitely shocking, if not embarrassing' when speaking after the game, and it also means that it will be the National First Division side heading into next season's CAF Confederation Cup rather than the Soweto giants.

Zakhele Lepasa's late penalty that secured their win and a place in next season's CCC means that Galaxy will become the first non-Absa Premiership side to represent South Africa on the continent since Black Leopards qualified for the 2012 edition - though they did so as runners-up in the Nedbank due to Orlando Pirates heading into the CAF Champions League.

Now, as the two clubs wait for the dust to settle before planning for their respective 2019/20 campaigns, there will no doubt be a number of incomings and/or outgoings at both clubs after their relative disappointment and success in 2018/19.

Do you think this is Kaizer Chiefs' worst season ever?
