Miguel Timm has explained why he shed tears after winning his first MTN8 trophy and being named Man of the Match.

Orlando Pirates beat AmaZulu 1-0 in a tightly contested MTN8 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, thanks to a goal by Monnapule Saleng.

Timm, who only joined Pirates ahead of the season, was visibly emotional after the final whistle ahead of receiving the Man of the Match award and explained how much this trophy means to him.

“It’s the best feeling ever,” he said on SABC Sport.

“My wife said she’s never seen my cry, tonight’s the first time.

“It means so much to me. I came here for this reason and I don’t think anything will beat this feeling, winning it with this team.”

‘It’s ok, it’s a cup. Sometimes it doesn’t need to be pretty. It needs guts, you need to play with your heart on your sleeves, but when you’re tired I look at all the people who came out here and rally behind us and I look at this badge, it lifts me up all the time when I’m tired.

“That’s why I keep on going.”

“Amazing things,”

“We’re not perfect, we’re far from perfect. We know we’re inconsistent.

“But today when it mattered most we show character and we do what needs to be done. That’s why we’re the champions.”
