Mokwena Reacts To Nedbank Cup Exit

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Rulani Mokkwena says Stellenbosch deserved the 2-1 win as they were eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

Mokwena suffered his first defeat as head coach in his 24th match in charge as Lee Langeveldt’s own goal was overturned by a second-half Iqraam Rayners brace.

It sees Sundowns’ winless run extend to five games in all competitions and they’ve yet to win since being confirmed as 2022/23 DStv Premiership champions.

“Let’s just congratulate Stellenbosch and wish them all the best for the rest of the cup, today we didn’t deserve to win and that’s competitive sport, if someone is better than you, you put your hands up, congratulate them and wish them all the best,” he told SuperSport TV after the game. “They were not much better, but they were better.”

“We lost a lot of the duels today, from the first minute but okay we go [on], as I said congratulations to Stellenbosch and wish them all the best.”

Stellies join Orlando Pirates in the last four of the competition as the champions bow out at the last-eight stage.
