Following his side’s 2-0 loss to Chippa United in a MTN8 quarterfinal match on Saturday, Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson said his side’s style of play was a bad advert for football.
Johnson was clearly not happy with his side, especially after how they conceded the opening goal following a defensive error by Isaac Nhlapo which allowed Rhulani Manzini to score.
“When you make a bad mistake and as a professional footballer you are not able to recover from that positively and you have a team that holds the ball, this is what is going to happen,” said Johnson.
“For me, they (Chippa) never really bothered us. But we made a mistake and we weren’t able to come out of it.
“Today we were just not good enough.
“They (Chippa) pressed well, they won the ball and went forward. We pressed, we won the ball, but we went backwards. These are things we will work on and try get better.
“Hopefully, in the future we can win a few more games at home and not be how we were today – this is a bad advert for the type of football we want to play.
“We are going back to the drawing board to fix up our mistakes.”
