Zwane Reacts To Ngcobo's Emotional Behaviour

Kaizer Chiefs defender Njabulo Ngcobo stole the show in Amakhosi's defeat to Lamontville Golden Arrows and interim coach Arthur Zwane has reacted to the incident.

Amakhosi dropped crucial points away from home against Abafana Bes'thende after two defensive errors led to the defeat.

Njabulo Ngcobo, who had a very challenging encounter forced Zwane to substitute him.

When taken off, the player snubbed a handshake from the interim coach and had a confrontation with goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter, which led to his teammates intervening in the incident. 

Gordon Igesund gives his thoughts on VAR and whether it has the desired impact to improve football.

Despite the blacklash from supporters for his behaviour, Zwane defended the player by suggesting that reaction by the defender was out of anger due to his costly error. 

"Look, I believe Njabulo was bit upset at himself. He gave the ball away in the wrong way and we were punished. I don't view it as some people may view it, as bad," Zwane told the media after the game. 

"I was a player myself, so I believe he was upset at himself because during half-time we spoke about him releasing ball early. (We told him), don't play the ball at the back, try to play upfront so we can attack. Unfortunately, it happened and we got punished. 

"He will learn, it is football and it is a game of mistakes. It demands to avoid mistakes, I expected him to do better and that was his decision. We got punished, he will learn from it."
