Free State Stars aim to win the Nedbank Cup to make up for the seasons they have not been doing well in the league. 

Ea Lla Koto will take on Maritzburg United in the final of the prestigious competition at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

Stars General Manager Rantsi Mokoena says winning the trophy would be special for the Bethlehem club.

“From the club’s point of view, for any team being in the final is important and it’s any club’s wish. For a club like Free State Stars who had a terrible past three seasons back-to-back, it is extra special,” Mokoena told the club’s official website.  

“We are not just in the final, we are going there to win it, and the financial aspect to it will really help us a lot. I speak for Stars and I am sure with other clubs as well, the financial aspect of running the club is costly and immense, and certainly winning will go a long way in terms of where money injected to the club is concerned,” added Mokoena. 

“It will be an honour to bring the trophy home especially in a small town like Bethlehem and for a guy like Paulus Masehe, who was born and bred in Qwaqwa where the team was formed. He (Masehe) played so many games for Stars, it will really be special to bow out of football with a trophy,” concluded the general manager. 

The Stars official has also been upset with the rumours linking the team’s head coach Luc Eymael with a move to Kaizer Chiefs.

Kaizer Chiefs must go for Steve Komphela is a free agent now and it will be cheaper for them (Chiefs) to go for a free agent than the coach who's already tied somewhere else
