Sundowns claimed their first trophy of the season after coming from behind to defeat Maritzburg United 2-1 in the final on Saturday evening.

There was a controversial penaly awarded to Sundowns in the win over Stellenbosch midweek, while there was late drama in the final when Maritzburg's Judas Moseamedi's strike in second-half stoppage time was ruled out for offside.

"My heart stopped, I thought it's a goal, thanks God I saw the linesman raising the flag, I don't know if it's offside or not, if it's not, I benefited and I have no shame!" Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.

"Some people have been getting all these benefits, I will get them, I want them for five games in a row. I've got no shame on that. It is the way it is in this Premier League, it's a jungle!," he went on.

"I didn't see that [penalty appeal for Sundowns in the first-half], I have to be honest but look I've got no emotions, I've got cold nerves on the refereeing the way it happens in the country, if I have to benefit five games in a row I'll glady take it home because people have done it in a series of games, so it's my chance, congratulations to Mamelodi Sundowns, we've won it and fairly with good goals and that's it, we lift the trophy, no stories!"
