Kaitano Tembo proud of his charges after progressing in the MTN8

Supersport United head coach Kaitano Tembo

SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo was proud of his charges after they overcame Orlando Pirates in the MTN8 quarter-finals.

The Tshwane outfit advance to the MTN8 semi-final s after seeing off the Buccaneers 4-3 on penalties on Saturday evening at the Orlando Stadium.

“I think, I’m really proud of the guys. I think they left everything out there. It wasn’t an easy game. Pirates controlled most of the possession,” Tembo told SuperSport TV.

“But we also tried to control where we wanted to have the ball and when we got to certain areas, we were putting pressure on them to try and get them on the transition.

“I think we had a couple of breaks, where we could’ve done better in terms of decision-making, choosing the right options as well. But I’m happy with the performance. I’m proud of the guys.

“I think we’re improving gradually, which is key because we just come off pre-season and this is our third game in seven days and we played one 120 minutes.

“So it’s not easy. But I’m happy I’m proud of the guys.” –
