SuperSport United have been crowned MTN8 champions after a 1-0 win over Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
Thamsanqa Gabuza was named the man of the match even though he lost his son a week before but hid the tragedy from his teammates.
Tembo dedicated the win and the cup to striker Thamsanqa Gabuza, describing him as a warrior and a hard worker who worked hard since joined United at the start of the season.
SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler says his strike partner Thamsanqa Gabuza’s decision to hide his son’s death and miss his funeral left them surprised.
“Everyone was shocked, it just shows his character,” said Grobler, whose lone strike sealed the deal for Matsatsantsa against the Lions of the North.
