Masilela will be playing in his first domestic final since returning to South Africa from EuropeKaizer Chiefs left-back Tsepo Masilela is anticipating a tough battle against SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.
Masilela returned to South African shores at the beginning of the season after a succesful tenure in Europe, where he played for Maccabi Haifa and Getafe.
The full-back has been in prime form throughout the season, steering Chiefs to their first PSL title in eight years by displaying both his defensive and attacking capabilities down the left flank.
“I will be playing in my first domestic final and I am excited about it," Masilela told Chiefs official website.
"It has always been my dream growing up to play in such games. It is a very important game for the Club and we want to give a good account for ourselves."

Masilela does not believe that Chiefs' recent league glory will have an impact on proceedings at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
“It will be a different ball game on Saturday. We are professionals and we just have to go out and do what is expected of us," he said.
Masilela's excellent season has not been without its plaudits, with the left-back earning praise from throughout the South African football fraternity. The player is expecting to build on the success of his first PSL season since returning from Europe.
“It has been a wonderful experience for me winning a league title in my first season after coming back from Europe," he added.
"I would like to thank the Technical Team, my teammates, the supporters and each and every one for the support. My family too has been very supportive. It is my wish to win more cups with the Glamour Boys going forward.”
