AmaZulu striker Gabadinho Mhango is confidently looking forward to facing former side Orlando Pirates in a highly-anticipated MTN8 final on Saturday.

Usuthu will be aiming to lift a trophy for the first time since 1976 at their homeground the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

"I think it's a game everyone is looking forward to," Mhango tells KickOff.

"I think personally, I'm looking forward to it. It's something amazing, to be in a final because finals come once a year.

"So being part of the team representing AmaZulu is something I'm grateful for, I'm looking forward to it.

"This is a game everyone will want to play.

"Playing against your former team, I think it's amazing, it's just a nice feeling seeing old friends and staff.

"So yes, I'm looking forward to it, I won't limit myself by predicting how many goals I will score, but whatever comes I will take.

"Because I might tell myself, I'm going to score two goals, but what if God wants me to score five?


"But what matters most is the team winning at the end of the day.

"There's nothing to prove to anyone, it's just about me enjoying my football, that's all.

"The Soweto derby is a game that we were watching as in football you need to analyse the opposition.

"So, we did analyse them, and I think it's going to be a weapon for us to use in the coming game.

"We would like to see the Usuthu supporters coming in their numbers because 11 players plus them (fans) it's going to be like 12 players."
