Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has called for the PSL to take all the Cup finals to the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. 

This comes after the Brazilians lifted the Telkom Knockout Cup at the expense of Maritzburg United two weeks ago. 

What made Mosimane call for a neutral Cup final venue was the overwhelming support his team received from their KwaZulu Natal-based fans.

The Kagiso-born mentor added Sundowns would have taken some of their Caf Champions League matches to Durban if it was easy.   

"The Zulu Kingdom is a blessing to me, it’s beautiful. We come here and we have big support of Sundowns in KZN. If it was easy, sometimes we would play our Champions League games here," Mosimane told the media.

"We have very big support here, and they love us, and it’s lucky for me to be here also. So, Lux [September], please make sure that all the Cup finals come to Moses Mabhida Stadium."

The Moses Mabhida Stadium has hosted more Cup finals than any other stadium in the country over the past nine years. 

With their recent success, Sundowns have now lifted the Telkom Knockout Cup twice in four years at the same venue. 

In 2015, the Tshwane giants beat Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 in the TKO final at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
