Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila’s Nedbank Cup final hero Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo has dedicated their recent achievement to former owner Masala Mulaudzi.
TTM beat Chippa United 1-0 at Free State Stadium in Mangaung on Saturday to become the first club from the Limpopo Province to lift the Nedbank trophy.
Ndlondlo was first recruited to TTM by the former owner, Mulaudzi, while they were still campaigning in the first division back in 2018.
While the club faced trials and tribulations under the ownership of Mulaudzi before he sold to current owner Abram Sello, Ndlondlo says the cup victory was a way of saying thank you to their former boss.
“I would like to thank Mr Masala Mulaudzi wherever he is,” Ndlondlo told the media.
“He played a big role in my life, I think in the team as well because if it wasn’t for him I don’t think we will be where we are now. Irrespective of what happened, he is still one of us, I think we did it for him as well because wherever he is he must be happy.
“This was our way of saying thank you to him because he played a major role in us being where we are now,” added the 25-year-old.
Meanwhile, Limpopo Premier Stan Chupu Mathabatha has also joined a long list of prominent people from the province to congratulate the club.
In a statement issued by his media team on Saturday, Mathabatha said the victory will go a long way in inspiring youngsters from within the province to also aim for the stars and achieve in their various fields, particularly in the field of sport.
