Kaizer Chiefs’ Arthur Zwane Expresses Concern About The Soweto Derby: “We donated It,” After Golden Arrows Defeat
After losing to Golden Arrows on Sunday in the matchup before the Soweto Derby, Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane believed that his team threw the game away. Zwane was left to lament his team’s squandered opportunities.
The 49-year-old did not express criticism of his teammates. Amakhosi and Pirates will resume their rivalry soon.
After taking the lead at Peter Mokaba Stadium in a thrilling PSL match thanks to goals from Sifiso Hlanti and Mduduzi Shabalala, the Soweto giants were again knocked back.
Ntsako Makhubela and Knox Mutizwa, who scored twice for Arrows, scored the goals that gave them the victory against Chiefs, who will now be nursing their wounds ahead of Saturday’s high-profile matchup against Orlando Pirates.
Zwane noted that despite his team’s patchy play, they had enough chances to win the game. He also acknowledged that it is not pleasant to lose a game just before facing the Buccaneers.
When you consider the number of first-half chances we produced, the goals we conceded, and how we conceded them, you can see that we gave the game away “Telling SuperSport TV, Zwane.
“We were genuinely playing in spurts, but even when we were moving forward, we appeared dangerous but did not take chances.
Watch the highlights below:
“Honestly, we had enough chances to win this game and could have played better defense, but we squandered those opportunities. Although it is a part of the game, it cannot impair the guys’ performance “He went on.
“As I stated, we were playing in spurts in terms of our play patterns and movement off the ball today. We were simply not ourselves from the start, but once we were able to get past the first line of defense, we were capable of scoring.
But as I mentioned, we had ups and downs, and we could have performed better.
After three consecutive losses, draws, and victories in PSL games, Chiefs’ inconsistency in the league continued with the loss.
The Glamour Boys also stayed in fifth place in the league rankings, which hurt their hopes of finishing in the top two spots.
The team of Zwane cannot afford to lose to Orlando Pirates again.
In front of an enthusiastic crowd at Nasrec’s FNB Stadium, Amakhosi and Buccaneers will face off.
With four consecutive victories over their bitter rivals, the Chiefs are unbeaten in their previous four league games against the Buccaneers.
