The inaugural Dstv Compact Cup which saw all 16 Dstv Premiership sides come together to form four teams namely Amabutho Football Club, Coastal Football Club, Dinaledi Football Club, and Warriors Football Club ended yesterday at FNB Stadium, Soweto, Johannesburg.
The four teams had a squad of 26 players each with the Warriors making up of players from Kaizer Chiefs Football Club, Orlando Pirates Football Club, TS Galaxy Football Club, and Swallows Football Club coached by Swallows head coach Dylan Kerr.
Coastal had players from Stellenbosch Football Club, Cape Town City Football Club, Baroka Football Club, and Chippa United Football Club which was coached by Stellies head coach Steve Barker.
Amabutho had players from all four KwaZulu-Natal clubs namely Royal Andile Mpisane Football Club, Amazulu Football Club, Lamontville Golden Arrows Football Club, and Maritzburg United Football Club, and were coached by Royal AM and Arrows head coaches John Maduka and Lehlohonolo Seema.
And lastly, Dinaledi had players from Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club, Supersport United Football Club, Marumo Gallants Football Club, and Sekhukhune United Football Club, and were coached by Gallants head coach Dan Malesela.
After last weekend's semi-finals clash at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban where Amabutho lost 2 - 1 to Warriors and Coastal defeated Dinaledi 3 - 0.
This week saw Dinaledi take on Amabutho for the 3rd place playoffs which Dinaledi won 1 - 0 thanks to Lesedi Kapinga's first-half strike, while the Warriors edged Coastal 2 - 1 after a brace from Ruzaigh Gamaldien cancelled out Ashley Du Preez's first-minute strike to see Warriors crowned the first Dstv Compact winners.
Saying the two players didn't offer what they should have offered in both games they played, and they looked like they were still enjoying their holidays.
I agree with Vilakazi on this one, as for me the two stars were nowhere to be seen and didn't offer anything other than being in the field of play.
We expect more from them.
