Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune claims their loss to SuperSport United in the Nedbank Cup was a bitter pill to swallow.
The AmaKhosi were dumped out of the cup after losing 5-3 on penalties to Stuart Baxter's charges on Saturday evening.
However, the Chiefs shot-stopper claims they wanted it more than their Tshwane counterparts.
"It's about who anted it the most. We wanted the most, but we created more chances, which we couldn't convert. Credit must go to both teams, we gave the fans a great match," he added.
"It's just a bitter pill to swallow. It broke our momentum, but we have to go back to the drawing board and see where it went all wrong."
Khune also scooped up the Man of the Match award, but took the time out to thank the supporters.
"It's very sad that I win Man of the Match while I'm on the losing side. It was lottery, it was a penalty shoot-out, I couldn't save one. We hit the post. It's sad that we lost but thank you so much to everyone who came out," he added.
"Our fans have been great. They are the ones who have been the driving force behind the team for the 14-game unbeaten run. So, we'll keep pushing, we still have to shift the focus to the league and do our best."
