Maritzburg United coach Fadlu Davids says they can't blame any individuals for the Nedbank Cup final loss to Free State Stars.

The Team of Choice ended the 2018 Nedbank Cup as runners-up after going down 1-0 to Ea Lla Koto at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
A first-half goal from Sthembiso Dlamini was all it took to give Ea Lla Koto their first piece of silverware after 24 years.
“It’s quite frustrating. We’ve got to take it as a team, we can’t blame any individuals. It was a mistake, but these young kids will learn from this," Davids told SuperSport after the game.
"We have to take it as a team and have to learn from this lessons. Hopefully next season we can correct it.
“We made an error and that was the only chance they had, but nobody is going to say Maritzburg had this possession, this chance. 
"Free State Stars are the winners and well done to them. I think they deserved it."

Xulu did it again, Felicia had a goal at his mercy but Siya decided to be selfish and hooked the ball over the bar. Such silly stuff is costly. But the teams played good football, except for the mistakes that led to the goal, players must control the ball, put it on the ground at once. Letting it bounce all over the place , led to the goal. But the game was of top quality, we enjoyed it. MU must chase the Top 8 trophy, they stand a good chance.

Ur boys did very well and true that we can't point fingers at individuals,that boy Jersey 08 played very interesting touches together with no15,unlucky that the referee denied u legitimate penalties but to me all team played very well,Stars soaked the pressure while u attacked non stop it was a 5 * performance on both teams

@Tycoon, I don't blame Pitso for pointing finger on other players for stupid error because he make them aware that he is looking on them...

Siyanda Xulu is not a youngster and he should have known better when he was he denied Andrea Fellicia that golden opportunity to level matters in the dying minutes of the game,unfortunately he opted for a wrong decision,obviously he should have allowed the striker to do his job...anyway you deserve a lot of credit coach for being able to transform an average Maritzburg United team into one of the League's most entertaining teams to watch this season.Hard luck coach hopefully next season you'll be rewarded for the hard work you've instilled at the Team of Choice.

It was clear from the first whistle that Mburg were playing their first and last cup final.Players play according to instructions Mburg did not play the style that made them giant killers who told them that coach.Mburg are known for their patience building from the back but yesterday it was skop in donker see you there.They got it .
