Zwane Reveals Halftime Instructions To Chiefs Stars

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Arthur Zwane has revealed what he told the players at halftime of their Soweto derby clash against Swallows.

The AmaKhosi ended the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season with a 2-2 draw against Swallows and will finish outside of the CAF continental spots.

Chiefs were second best for most of the first half and Zwane was not pleased with the way his side were playing.

"It's been a difficult one [season], we made it difficult for ourselves, we started off very well for about 20 minutes we were in the game, we dictated terms," Zwane told SuperSport after the game.

"You could see we can score at any given time, then as soon as we scored, actually I was even worried you know that we scored too early.

"After scoring the goal we took the foot off the pedal, now we allowed Swallows to be on top of us and you could see the way they were attacking, they could score at any given time as well.

"Bruce [Bvuma] kept us in the game. We still couldn't raise our game because our midfielders were not working hard enough and second-half again, they had three corners in a space of ten minutes, if not seven, eight, then you could see that something is gonna happen.

"At half-time we told the players, listen, 'Stop playing balls backwards' you know 'try to think about going forward all the time', look at the goal we conceded that led to the first penalty.

"A player is free, he turns backwards and plays the ball, he passed their striker actually. So those are the things letting us down in terms of games we should have collected maximum points," he continued.

"But to be honest Swallows deserves it today, they created more chances than us, they could have scored more goals, fortunately for them they scored on penalties.

"I think they did well, it's sad to see them in this situation when they are playing such good football and with some of their good players, young players as well."
