He won the cup in 2014 when he was coaching Big Bullets and was at it again in 2015 when he won the cup as Mighty Wanderers head coach.

And on Saturday afternoon, Eliya Kananji made his own history when he successfully defended the cup after beating Silver Strikers 5-4 on post-match penalties to become the first coach in history to win it thrice in a row and with two different teams.

Kananji also made the Nomads to become the most successful team in Carlsberg Cup competition by winning the cup three times, one ahead of cross-town rivals Bullets who won it in 2001 and in 2014.

Apart from Kananji, Jafali Chande and Jimmy Zakazaka made their own history as well by becoming the first players to win the cup twice with two different clubs.
