#TKO2015FINAL - Reaction as Sundowns lift title

The Telkom Knockout final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Wednesday evening.

The Brazilians won the title after a 3-1 win, taking the League Cup crown for the first time since 1999.

Here is a selection of some of the comments from both camps in the aftermath of the game, which was played in front of a sell-out 53,357 crowd.

"I think Sundowns didn’t play very well. Sundowns was very effective yes, but they didn’t play very well. They did the business and played to win the trophy." - Mamelodi Sundonws coach Pitso Mosimane

"I'm sad that my brother didn’t win his first trophy. I feel sorry for Steve because he is such a good coach. To lose two cup final in three months is extremely unlucky. But I know he's at a good club, a club that is very respectful and a club that doesn’t press panic buttons. I've told him the future is bright." - Mosimane

"Chiefs were more effective on the ball, their combination play was very dangerous, it was very good. They overloaded the midfield with Shaba and I told you about Ekstein. Yeye was also pushing on. Katsande was the main man in the first half and was my man of the match." - Mosimane

"I don’t think the result is a true reflection of the match. I strongly believe that on the night Kaizer Chiefs gave it away." - Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela

"The difference between the two teams was that the team that was prepared to take their chances, they ended as the winners. Had we taken our chances, it would have been 6-3." - Komphela

"Unfortunately we must go back home losers. That's a pity because it's a second final in three months. It's not nice…it's painful." - Komphela

"I never feel let down by the players. We're all in this together. They tried their best and I'm sure any Chiefs player that goes in there would want to win it for the club." - Komphela

"We're all disappointed. This is another setback but it's part of the journey. Things didn’t go our way, but we have to now dust ourselves off and move on. We need to get back on the horse straight away." Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala

"It's a good feeling, a great feeling because it's been a while since Sundowns has won trophies consistently. For us we feel great and need to now make sure we build on this." - Man-of-the-match Denis Onyango

"I'm over the moon because we worked very hard to get here. The history has shown that Chiefs always dominated these big games, so we're happy to end that final advantage they had over of us." - Sundowns captain Thabo Nthethe
