Onyango: We won it for Madisha

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns players have dedicated their 2-0 victory over Chippa United to late defender Motjeka Madisha.

The Brazilians confirmed on Saturday that the remains of the body that was burnt beyond recognition in a car accident in Kempton Park on December 12 last year belonged to Madisha after the DNA results came out 50 days later.

'Ace' as Madisha was popularly known among his peers will be buried in Limpopo this coming weekend.

Goalkeeper Denis Onyango says they wanted to win the game at Loftus Stadium on Sunday in memory of Madisha.

"First of all I want to thank the players for the great job. You see I left the game clean in a mud pitch like this. I think they did the job for me and I got away with a clean sheet," said Onyango after keeping his 10th clean sheet in the league.

"But the hard work that the guys put in after a long trip to Thouyandou two days back, we thought we would struggle a bit but the guys knew the job in hand and we wanted to do this for our late brother Madisha.

"And that's why we scored two goals and we couldn't score a third one. But all in all we are happy with the result and the clean sheet is very important for us."
