Chibuku Super Cup losing finalists Ngezi Platinum Stars remain positive and are now shifting their focus to the premier league.
Defeat is a learning curve from where the strong pick up from and soldier on and the Stars are dusting themselves off after a losing tussle with FC Platinum in the Chibuku super cup final on Sunday.
Despite a 5-3 penalty shootout defeat to Pure Platinum Play, Madamburo are positive of making a comeback, as they now take aim at the premiership.
Coach Rodwell Dhlakama says: “We wanted to win the trophy because it comes with a lot of package to represent Zimbabwe in the Confederation Cup and it would have placed our team on a broader perspective. I’m sure we are a bit devastated by the loss, but we cannot lose sleep over it because we still have a lot to play for in the league which is a marathon race. We also have a chance to re-organise ourselves in the next Chibuku Super Cup.”
It is the second time that Ngezi have lost in a Chibuku Super Cup final after falling to Highlanders in 2019.
They are, however, not without victory after winning the country’s biggest knockout tournament in their maiden season in the top flight in 2016.
However, the well-funded Mhondoro based side is yet to win the league title.
