Reneilwe Letsholonyane says the feeling of achievement in winning the Telkom Knockout will be amplified because of how quickly he's seen his goals come to fruition at SuperSport United.
Letsholonyane and company will face in-form Cape Town City at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday and 'Yeye' will be looking to lift his first piece of silverware with the club.
The 34-year-old midfielder won plenty of silverware while at Kaizer Chiefs but is now focused on claiming a first title with Matsatsantsa a Pitori.
“Playing in the first cup final being here only for four months in an achievement for me and for the team,” Letsholonyane said.
“I think it is a motivation in itself that four months together and already we are in the cup final.”
Letsholonyane added that one of his reasons for joined the club was that he wanted to win titles and with the opportunity he has on Saturday, he is hoping to fulfill that ambition.
“As a person, I want to achieve things and achieving those means winning medals. So it is an opportunity for me to win and it is important for me to win this one as I joined the club to win trophies and here is the opportunity to do that,” he said.
Having beaten both Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates to reach the final, Letsholonyane feels that will count for nothing as they face an in-form City who appear to be hungry for success.
“It's a different one, yes we had a challenge in beating those teams to be where we are but Cape Town City has done well as well and is a good team," he said.
“It will be a different ball game on Saturday and we won't say since we beat Sundowns and Orlando Pirates to be where we are is going to be a good one.
“We won't take it like that, it will be difficult for us. We will respect them as a team.”
