Sensation Mbule wins award

SuperSport United maestro Sipho Mbule won man of the match award when his team beat Bidvest Wits in the quarterfinal of the 2019 MTN8 Cup on the weekend.


The last eight encounter took place at the Johannesburg’s Bidvest Stadium on Sunday afternoon at 3pm.


Mbule’s exploits captivated the entire stadium before making way for Jamie Webber in the 85th minute of the match.


Mbule spent most of the past season as a regular member of the Matsatsantsa Reserve League team. Also, the skilful midfielder was a member of the South African Football Association (SAFA) junior squads.


Two seasons ago, the Free-State-born prospect formed part of the United team that participated in the final of the CAF Total Confederation Cup.


Meanwhile the MTN8 Cup semi-final draw that was conducted at the same venue subsequently after the match, saw United taking on rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in another Tshwane derby match while Polokwane City and Highlands Park will be battling each other in another last four encounter.
