Kaitano Tembo On The Verge Of Setting Up A New MTN8 Trophy Record!

Zimbabwe and Supersport United Coach Kaitano Tembo Looking For His First Silverware as the club's Head Coach.

Zimbabwe international and Supersport United coach, Kaitano Tembo is on the brink of setting up a new MTN8 trophy record as he prepares to take on Benni McCarthy's Cape Town City in the MTN8 trophy final in Durban on Saturday.

The 48-year-old tactician who was appointed Supersport United head coach in August 2018 after guiding the club from jaws of relegation last season as a caretaker coach, will set up a new record on Saturday by becoming the first coach in South Africa to ever win the trophy both as a player and coach if he happens to lift the MTN8 cup on Saturday.

Tembo joined Supersport United in 1999 as a player and was captain for for four years during which time he won the MTN8 trophy (then called the SAA Super 8 competition) in 2004 as a player.

The former Zimbabwe Warriors defender who went on to win the Absa premiership title in the following year (2005) is one of the club's highest capped players, having played over 200 matches for Matsatsantsa.

Tembo has also won the Telkom Cup in 2014, back to back Nedbank Cup in 2016 and 2017, a single MTN8 trophy in 2017 and a runners-up medal in the CAF Confederations Cup in the 2017/18 season as the club's assistant coach.

On Saturday Tembo will face former teammate at Ajax Cape Town Benni Mccarthy as he will be looking forward to lifting his first silverware as the club's head coach.
