MTN 8 Wafa Wafa final

2017-10-18 06:00

THE annual MTN 8 Wafa Wafa final­ between SuperSport United and Cape Town City is not only expected to be riveting, but will also create fireworks.

There are a couple of factors that will turn on this clash from the outset. Last season the former Bafana Bafana midfielder and United head coach Eric Tinkler won the Telkom Knock Out with the Cape Town outfit, and on Saturday he will be sitting on the opposite side.

Last December Tinkler, with the Cape Town boys, outsmarted Matsatsantsa a Pitori (SuperSport United) 2-1 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane. The of the well travelled Tinkler could be the key in these finals and is expected to count heavily against inexperienced Citizens (CT City) head coach, Benni McCarthy.

McCarthy will be involved in the final for the first time in his career as coach.

The final starts at 7pm at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The Citizens owner, John Comitis says the Saturday’s clash will be a “special” occasion.

“People must remember that Cape Town City is two years old in the PSL.

“They won their first final in the first season and now again in the second­ final of the different competition.

“It is also special that McCarthy is in the final for the first time as head coach.”

United captain Dean Furman says the final will be a do or die affair and both sides are looking good.

“It’s going to be a tough one for both teams and they will go in for a kill.”

Tickets for the MTN8 final are still available and can be bought at TicketPro outlets, CNA, Jet, Edgars, selected Engen and PostNet at R40 for adults and R15 for children under the age of 12.
