Mukula Young Santos Head coach Nyambeni Eric Nevhutanda says it was not an easy journey to qualify.

“The games were not easy, they were actually very difficult,” he told the media after the match.

“But it needed the commitment that this club showed throughout. From the management, the technical team, the fans, and the players. Not forgetting the Chief of Mukula Pfuneni Takalani who also supported this club and this is why we are where we are.”

Nevhutanda is also confident ahead of the upcoming ABC Motsepe provincial playoffs taking place in Tzaneen.

“We are ready [for the provincial playoffs]. We didn’t just reach this stage, we also had intentions to go and represent Vhembe at the playoffs.

“The club will go all the way and qualify for the ABC Motsepe League,” he said.
