Manqoba - 'I Don't Think Chiefs Should've Been The Team To End Our Record'

Manqoba's men was staged with a 1-2 defeat as chiefs made a comeback

 

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi says Kaizer Chiefs shouldn't have been the team to end their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership.

After taking the lead through Gaston Sirino's neat finish, Chiefs hit back in the second half through Mosa Lebusa's own and Dumisani Zuma's strike.

While they did end up on the losing side, the Sundowns coach felt the Soweto giants did not make the game difficult enough for them.

"I think it's a game that we could have easily wrapped earlier," Mngqithi told SuperSport after the game.

"We messed around. We resorted to ball possession when we could have penetrated and created some good moments. They gave us opportunities. Even second half, we had a very good opportunity to get the second.

"But when you don't take that on a counter-attack we lose possession instead of blocking the opponent or making sure he doesn't go past you. So that they don't gain momentum when they break. But when you let him loose on the half-way line already from there an opportunity is created.

"You can say their goal was a deflection but there's no luck in football. Only when hard work meets opportunity and because they worked very hard to get themselves in those moments. We slipped on a counter. We were caught with our right channel being open when we knew very well our legs were going. We felt we need to attack with one fullback at a time. And when both fullbacks attacked simultaneously and then an opening is created without a six. The six shifted one side. It became very naive defending. It looked like nobody could see Zuma at that time.

"I honestly don't think this is the team that should have taken away our unbeaten record. I don't think they fought hard enough to make the game difficult for us. But I believe we lost to ourselves."
