Mariveni United to Nebank top 32


The Limpopo-based SAB League team, Marivane United, will represent the province in the last 32 of the prestigious Nedbank Cup.

They will host EC Bees from the Eastern Cape at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday. According to the managing director of United, Ms Tsakani Hlungwane, their success can be attributed to the commitment among the players and the management. 

She thanked the management of Safa Limpopo, who supported them during their matches. Hlungwane stated that they had played many friendly matches in preparing for the Nedbank matches. She feels they are fully prepared for the Nedbank heat. Hlungwane said that they were going all out in searching of a Good Samaritan who could assist them financially.

When asked about their level of readiness for the match, the coach of United, Mr Doctor Ntimbane, said they were ready for whatever heat they might come across in the match. Ntimbane further said that all his players were razor sharp. He cited a number of players, including Joseph Mbombi, Thapelo Manganyi and Lesego Monyela, on whom they would pin their hopes during the match.

When asked about their secret weapons, he said that all the players were sharp and ready for action. He said that they had qualified for the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup the previous year and were then beaten 2-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns.
