The winger scored the second goal in the Telkom Knockout Final, and speaking after the match had this to say: "It was a special day for us because Orlando Pirates had never won this trophy up until now. So things are looking good.
"Even before this Final our League form had started picking up, so now we are obviously going to go for the League and the Nedbank Cup too.
"I want to say that playing in Durban has been amazing. The turnout of fans here tonight is better than what we get back in Joburg so we were very excited to get out on the field.
"We have also been lucky in Durban, we have always done well here."
Klate's teammate McCarthy was involved in half-time scuffle with Bidvest Wits assistant coach Eric Tinkler, but Klate says he still brings a different dimension to Pirates.
"Benni is a great person off the field to all of us and brings so much value on the field. Yeah, we told him to just relax at half-time because the Wits guys were chirping him and trying to unsettle him.
"Benni will be vital for us in the League and in Africa. Actually, when Benni plays we have never lost yet, so that shows you."
