Mabedi: Ajax Controlled The Game

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender and captain, Patrick Mabedi, tells the Siya crew that Kaizer Chiefs lost the MTN 8 trophy to Ajax Cape Town because the youthful Urban Warriors controlled the game. 
 
 
A first half penalty from Nathan Paulse was enough to hand the Urban Warriors a 1-0 win over Chiefs and the MTN8 title.
 
The Malawian, who is now assistant coach to Mushin Etrugral at Mpumalanga Black Aces, said that Ajax used long balls with a tall striker in the box which was hard for Chiefs to control and hence the defeat.
 
"Ajax controlled the game. From the first whistle they took the game to Chiefs and I think their speed and quick inter passing also helped the,"Mabedi said.
 
"They were so quick for for Chiefs defenders and that's why they were able to move quick up front and create the chances. Ajax were a good team on the day.
