VV said it was always going to be difficult to get the players into right frame of mind after winning the Telkom Cup Final against Ajax Cape Town in Durban last weekend.
"(Gavin) Hunt knows better than me because he has won the League three times, but in my opinion the first game after winning a Cup is the most difficult.
"My players celebrated for two or three days after winning the Telkom Cup and this made my job of preparing them for this game difficult.
"For me, this has been it a nice win for us. They (SupersSport) beat us twice in the League and now we beat them here at the Rand stadium.
"I agree with Hunt that he was missing a number of players, but for me SuperSport is SuperSport. I don't care who plays for SuperSport... SuperSport is a big club."
VV also praised his players for showing great character, especially after winning the Telkom Knockout Final against Ajax Cape Town last weekend.
"Maybe it was good that we had to play against SuperSport; maybe if it was a smaller team who knows? But I think my boys' attitude was very good - especially in the second half.
"For us it was a very important game because my players had to prove that they are not players for only one game after winning the Telkom Knockout Final.
"People talk about the mentality of South African players, but I saw today that my players are very professional," he adds.
