Freese Overjoyed With Cup Win

After his Platinum Stars' team beat Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout Final on Saturday night, coach Allan Freese said he was happy for everyone involved with the club, and the entire Bafokeng nation.

Freese was overjoyed at winning their second trophy of the season, and had special praise for veteran Namibian striker Henrico Botes, who he believed was unbelievable on the night.

"We went into the change room, we spoke about the mistakes we were making, which was not much.

"We said let's get the ball up to Henrico, let him hold it up, and let's support him, Mbatha go wide, Tintswalo go wide, but they've got to be more positive to go forward.

"Issa didn't have a good game, Solly was having a brilliant game, so we said Solly you've played in that position, go play and we'll take Issa out, and Ngele go in and support Henrico with Robert, and it worked out.

"But I'm very happy for Allan, the players and the support staff we have, for everybody involved with the club and the Bafokeng nation that supports the team.

"And for the supporters that came to support the game, thank-you very very much, and unlucky to Roger and Pirates, I think that was a beautiful goal from Ngele there.

"When we brought in Tsotso (Ngele), when he got the touches right, then he was going, but Henrico, unbelievable upfront, holding the ball, getting everyone to play, it was good to see.

"I am so happy for the players, we work hard, we do the right things I think, and well done to the boys, I can't say enough now."
