The Chairperson of the Nedbank Cup champions, Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC, Abraham Sello says he saw potential in the then cash-strapped team when he bought it. Sello says he took a well calculated risk.

He was speaking during the parading of the Nedbank Cup in Polokwane, Limpopo, today.


The club clinched the Nedbank Cup after beating Chippa United 1-0 in Bloemfontein last weekend.

Sello says many people questioned his decision of buying a team sitting in the relegation zone with debts.

“Many people questioned why  I was buying a club which is almost in the relegation zone. Some were worried about the financial status but what people did not know is that I have been following the team for a long time and I had realised that the team had potential and quality players. I took a calculated risk and here we are today, the winner of the Nedbank 2021,” he adds.

Limpopo Sport MEC Thandi Moraka had held a congratulatory ceremony to honour TTM. Moraka says TTM’s achievement should serve as a motivation to other clubs in the province.

“This achievement will also serve as the motivation to other Limpopo based football clubs that such achievement are possible and are doable.  I want to take this opportunity and thank them for having brought the 2021 Nedbank Cup to the province of Limpopo,” adds Moraka.
