After successfully defending the Discovery Walter Sisulu Soccer Cup, Galatasaray will give their players R40000 to share.

Led by Kaizer Chiefs' veteran Arthur Zwane, Galatasaray defeated Mohlakeng Trabzone, led by former professional, Sipho Khuse, 3-0 in the final of this annual Safa Soweto tournament on Sunday.

The winners bagged R55000 while Trabzone pocketed R20000.

Seth Molele, Galatasaray coach and co-director, was on cloud nine after making history by winning this title three times in four attempts.

They lifted it in 2005, and 2007 while in 2006 they were runners up losing to Mike Ntombela's Senaoane Gunners on penalties.

"It's a great achievement and incredible way to end 2008. Credit to the players, officials and supporters for a job well done," said Molele.

"The majority of our players are unemployed, we will be giving them the chunk of the money."

Khuse said: "It is a great improvement on our part after we were eliminated in the first round in our first attempt last year."

Phil "Chippa" Mogodi, Safa Soweto chief executive officer, said: "We are grateful to all the people who contributed to the success of Safa Soweto in 2008.

"With the Confederations Cup coming to our country next year, the plan is to use our competitions to bring Sowetans to stadiums."
