Uganda international Allan “Dancing Rasta” Kateregga’s Cape Town City FC are the new champions of the lucrative MTN 8 Cup in South Africa following their 1-4 win against Super Sport United on penalties following a barren draw in normal time at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday evening.
However, despite travelling with the team to Durban, the former KCCA FC and AFC Leopards players didn’t make Benni McCarthy’s 18 man squad for the match.
To claim the title, Cape Town edged Maritzburg 0-1 in the quarter finals as well as Mamelodi Sundowns 2-4 on penalties following a 1-1 aggregate result from two legs which games Kateragga never made the 18 man squad.
Cape Town took home with R8 million following the win over Super Sport United.
This season Allan Kateragga has only featured in three matches for Cape Town out of ten games in all competitions so far coming on as a 69th minute substitute for Norodien in their league 2-1 loss at Baroka, unused substitute in their 1-4 home loss to Kaizer Chiefs and an 84 minute substitute for Norodien in their 2-2 league match draw against Orlando Pirates away from home.
In the Premier Soccer League, Cape Town City currently sits in 11th place with 6 points from 6 games.
