An emotional Miguel Timm said he was "living the dream" after Orlando Pirates clinched the MTN8 trophy following a tense victory over AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Man of the moment in local football Monnapule Saleng once more proved instrumental for the Buccaneers as he scored a sensational effort directly from a free-kick.

Saturday's triumph was the first trophy Timm has lifted as a Buccaneers since a move to the Soweto giants at the beginning of the season.

"I'm so happy, I dreamt of this when I signed here," a delighted Timm told Pirates media.

"I'm living my dream, this is the first of many and we aren't done and haven't don enough yet.

"I always try to play for my teammates and we have such amazing attackers and I'm more than happy to do the dirty work to free them up going forward.

"I told them already they're [Orlando Pirates fans] the best, when I feel down and tired I know and my teammates know they are there to give us that extra push.

"I know they work tough jobs and they depend on us a lot of the time to provide happiness to them. We're happy that we could give them happiness and joy tonight."
