#MDCFinale in quotes

David Notoane, Mamelodi Sundowns coach

"It was a taxing season. We fought from start to finish and I am happy that we finally lifted the trophy, I think we deserve it. We played very well throughout the season and we are deserved winners.

"I have to give credit to the boys. They showed great mental strength to overcome all the challenges we faced. Now they have been rewarded for their hard work. They are very excited because we will be going to the Netherlands. We are very excited about the trip, we are looking forward to it."

Duncan Lechesa, Bloemfontein Celtic coach

"I can’t say it’s disappointing the boys played really well it was one of those days that one has to lose so we really have to accept the loss today and move on. The problem was immediately the boys heard the score being announced during half time that Mamelodi Sundowns is leading two-nil they went down and these nothing I could i'm outside and they are inside and mentally they just switched off.

"The plan is to start afresh. Thank you to all the supporters who supported the Diski Challenge and thank those who came to support us. "
