Wits and Sundowns will square off in the MTN8 final on Saturday. Both teams are in rich veins of form, with the Brazilians not only doing well domestically but continentally as well, after they booked their spot in the CAF Champions League final. The Students, on the other side, have made their intentions for this season very clear.
Wits eliminated Pirates in their opening game of this competition, and are a team oozing with confidence. Supporters Club sat with Wits fan Mpho Ramahlo and discussed the upcoming final.
Beaver Nazo: Mpho, how are you doing, buddy?
Mpho Ramahlo: All is well, my brother.
BN: Wits take on Sundowns this weekend. Your thoughts?
MR: Hahahaha! We will just go there and collect the cup. Only the cup. It's just so simple for us, after the cup game we collect the cup.
BN: Sundowns are certain that they are winning the cup...
MR: Well, as you know, Beaver, kefeditse ka Soweto (I'm done with Soweto), so tomorrow it's time to show South Africa that we are ruling this season. They can say that they gonna win, but they know. We are not there to fight, we just want our cup. Their back four is very slow, so tell me who is gonna stop Mhango? All we are gonna do is just collect our cup and come back and concentrate on the league. I wish you will be there to witness this so that I can talk to you after the game. We know they rely on Hlompho and Billiat, but we're more than capable of hurting them. We don't rely on certain players.
BN: So your message to them is that you are there to collect your cup?
MR: It's so simple, we don't wanna fight, we just want our cup. Come match time, we will be there waiting for the 90 minutes to end so that we can collect what's rightfully ours.
BN: Thanks for your time, Mpho, and good luck.
MR: It's a pleasure, Beaver!
Do you think Wits have what it takes to be the Last Man Standing?
