SuperSport United’s prolific striker Bradley Grobler has credited his teammate Thamsanqa Gabuza after walking away with the MTN8 Last Man Standing award.
The 32-year-old capped off a fine season for Matsatsantsa after scooping the prestigious award. Grobler was pivotal for SuperSport, scoring two goals, including one in the final against Highlands Park as Kaitano Tembo’s men lifted the trophy in the 2019/20 season.
Despite walking away with the trophy, the former Gotzepe striker reserved a special mention for his strike partner Gabuza, who has been scintillating since joining SuperSport from Orlando Pirates last season.
“It was nice to play all the games in this MTN8 Cup, reach the final and scored the winning goal which helped the team win another Cup. So, it was a great feeling for me.
“First of all, we know football is a team sport and I have to thank my teammates. I thank the technical team and everyone behind the scenes who pushed me hard and got my fitness to where it should be.
“There are a lot of people that I owe this award to, and I think my partnership with Thami Gabuza needs a special mention. I thought he was unbelievable during the whole campaign and for me he was equally deserving of the award as well. Credit to him and the rest of the team. Let’s hope one of us can win it again this year,” Grobler told the club’s website.
Grobler, who finished on 16 goals in all competitions last season, continued where he left off, scoring three goals in the opening two matches against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila and Black Leopards respectively.
