SuperSport Hand Players Pre-Game Gift Before Pirates Victory

SuperSport United Made Sure Their Players Had Moral Support In Durban

By Joe Crann - Jun 26, 2017 12:00 PM @YesWeCrann

SuperSport United sweetened this weekend’s victory over Orlando Pirates as they made sure the players had their family to cheer them on at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

Stuart Baxter’s team put in a special performance on Saturday night as they put four goals past Orlando Pirates to become the first team to retain the Nedbank Cup trophy, with Bradley Grobler, Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha finding the back of the net.

As an added incentive for their players, SuperSport offered to pay for travel and accommodation as Matsatsanta’s cup winners brought along their wives, girlfriends or partners to share in the occasion.

It wasn’t just the players though, with the club also offering the same to each of their staff members as they thanked the families for their support over the course of the season.

Dominic Busschau, SuperSport’s Head of Operations, says that they make this gesture for every final as part of their ambition to make the club ‘family oriented’.

Busschau explained to the Siya crew, “We make it a standard thing for all out cup finals that partners are invited to attend because for us it’s important. You don’t play in a final every week and it’s important for all the players to share those special moments with their families.

“They are away from their families for large parts of the year and the family can’t always spend time with them. For us as a club we want it to be family oriented and this is something we do every time.”

HAPPY to see all the hurt and angry Rats fans trying to sound clever after such a season...Still not sure who or what they are blaming. 4 tactically sound coaches could help so changing coaches is not the best solution (2) having more money than Chiefs and buying all the ''quality players'' also did not help so what is the solution.
