SuperSport United claimed their MTN8 title on Saturday evening after Bradley Grobler's first-half header secured a 1-0 win over Highlands Park.
Tembo missed out on his first title last season after losing to Cape Town City in last season's MTN8 final, but he says the players have since bought into his philosophy.
"My first trophy, but at the same time I have to give it to the guys, since day one we have been a family, they accepted me. We got into the final last season [lost to Cape Town City on penalties] but we kept on working,' Tembo told SuperSport after the game.
The players bought to my philosophy and they are the ones running with it now, so it makes it easier for me, that's why I give it to them and the technical team.
"The board, the CEO Stan Matthews, I know he always gives me a hard time because he believes in me I really appreciate that, even the the chairman as well. It's not easy for them to give an opportunity to someone like me but I really appreciate that," he said.
