Abel Makhubele Season Review

Following a disastrous run by Black Leopards in the PSL during the 2012/13 season, Soccer-Laduma spoke to Abel Makhubele on what went wrong at the Limpopo outfit.

Makhubele coached the side for the better part of the season. He replaced Ian Palmer in the second round of the campaign.

“The season we just had wasn’t different to last season (2011/12). Last season we conceded 58 goals. This past season we conceded 63 goals. I think we had a problem with the defence. We struggled to get it right defensively. The goalkeeping department didn’t assist either. We never got things right. But I still think that we were unfortunate to get relegated. But with the way things were going it was evident.

"I feel that we could have done better. We tried all the players we had. The question will be, ‘Were they good enough?’ there is no defender or goalkeeper we had who can say he was never given a chance. All the players were given a chance but there was still no improvement.

"When things happen the way they did we just have to accept that maybe the coach wasn’t okay or the players were not okay. We were in the top six in the league in terms of scoring goals. It is very strange that a team that finished 6th on the scoring table got relegated. It’s obvious that defensively we were not good. How can we concede 63 goals? But I wouldn’t want to blame anybody,” said Makhubele.

Makhubele was relieved of his duties at the end of the season. Sunday Chidzambwa, who was the club’s technical director, has also been shown the door.
