Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung happy with manner of victory over Orlando Pirates

Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung was not just pleased with adding yet another piece of silverware to the burgeoning trophy cabinet at Naturena, but he has also expressed his delight at the manner in which Amakhosi defeated Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout Final on Saturday.
Chiefs have faced criticism on two fronts this season, firstly that they are dull to watch, and secondly that they are ‘one-man show', referring to the brilliance of Zimbabwean striker Knowledge Musona.
But Motaung says Saturday's 3-0 triumph over bitter rivals Pirates should put paid to those two suggestions.
_quote "We demonstrated that we cannot only win but that we can play good football at the same time," Motaung said, before adding that his team drew inspiration from Barcelona's 5-0 thrashing on Real Madrid earlier in the week. "The guys were inspired by the game on Monday.
"I've been hearing people say that we depend on Musona but our win has exposed that myth. We showed there is enough depth in the squad," Motaung says.
"It was also very important for us to prove that our previous [3-1] win against Pirates in the League was not a fluke."
Motaung said his side had created history by winning the same trophy twice in the same year.
Their win in Saturday night's final followed a 2-1 final success in April over Ajax Cape Town.
