Domingo out to hurt future employers Sundowns in Nedbank Cup semi-final


Haashim Domingo wants to end off his Bidvest Wits tenure with a bang by knocking future employers Mamelodi Sundowns out of the Nedbank Cup semi-final at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

Midfielder Domingo, goalkeeper Ricardo Goss and striker Gift Motupa will all be joining the Brazilians next season with Wits having lost their Absa Premiership status after being sold to Limpopo-based GladAfrica Championship outfit Tsakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM).

But the Clever Boys still have a chance of lifting some silverware before their 100-year-history comes to an end when they face Downs in the Nedbank Cup last four when football resumes after a four-month enforced suspended break due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown.

And Domingo is focusing on finishing this season first and honouring his contract with the Students whom he will 'fight for'.

"I can't comment about that for now (playing against his new employers). I'm honouring my Wits contract and concerning joining them next season, I can't comment on that," Domingo insisted during his interview with Sowetan.

"Right now, I am a Wits player and that's what it's going to be. I am going to fight for them.

"We want to go to the final and Sundowns also have that mentality of wanting to go to the final. So it is just a matter of giving our all and leave everything on the field and we will see what the outcome is.

"We have to write our own history with the club that's almost 100 years old. For us as players we need to get some silverware irrespective of whatever happens, you know.

"We need to show that we are better than everything that went on and write our own stories. Hopefully, we will be in the final and we can say that irrespective of what happened with the club, us as professional footballers we still fought and that will mean a lot.

"We have not played too, it is not like Sundowns have been playing matches and we were not. So I think the game will be interesting and it will be up to who wants it at the end of the day.

"We are looking forward to it, we know it is not going to be easy but we are excited about it," Domingo added.
