Mokoena: Vila Will Want To Upset Wits
Aaron Mokoena Discusses MTN8 Final
Former Bafana Bafana captain and Bidvest Wits defender, Aaron Mokoena, believes that Sibusiso Vilakazi will want to upset his former club in the MTN8 final.
Vilakazi completed a move from Wits to Sundowns during the recent transfer period after spending seven years with the Clever Boys, where he won the 2013/14 PSL Player of the Season award. In the build up to today’s final between Vilakazi’s current and former club, Mokoena has said that the 26-year-old will be determined to put in a good performance against Gavin Hunt’s men.
“For Vilakazi, it will probably be the most important game of his life, having just signed for Sundowns,” he told Soccer Laduma. “He will want to upset Bidvest (Wits). He played with them, and I know he had opportunities to leave over the years, and Wits held onto him. So he wants to upset them.”
The 35-year-old went on to say that he believes Gavin Hunt will try to outplay Sundowns, not only in defence, but also in the final third.
“Wits are always direct, but, for me, I think they can also mix it up a bit,” he continued. “Defensively there’s a lot of quality and, knowing Gavin (Hunt), he will absolutely make sure that he outplays Sundowns by just defending and, he does have goal scorers as well. And, with the goal scorers he has, they can absolutely kill it, like we saw (against Cape Town City) a few weeks ago.”
Stand a chance to win R80 000 for every goal scored in the MTN8. One winner takes all.
