Following his side’s 3-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in an Absa Premiership match on Tuesday night, Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka admits they struggled to deal with the quality of the Amakhosi.
“We made a lot of unforced errors,” said Letsoaka.
“Chiefs played very well on the day and made a lot of combination play which we could not deal with, especially in the first half.
“In the second half we came back a little bit, we were better organised but unfortunately we got a red card at the wrong time of the match.
“After that we collapsed.
“We did pass the ball a little bit better in the second half, but we lost a lot of possession under no pressure.
“In the final third of the field we didn’t make the right pass.”
Gladwin Shitolo was shown a straight red card three minutes into the second half after a studs-up tackle on Lucky Baloyi.
Following the match Letsoaka tried to shake hands with the referee, but was waved away, something the Arrows coach protested about in the post-match press conference.
“I was a little bit shocked after the end of the game when I go to the referee and try to shake his hand and he refuses to shake my hand. I don’t know what it means for a referee to do that, but I thought there was a FIFA Fair Play that should be shown all the time, but I don’t know what happened,” said Letsoaka.
