Solinas Explains Amakhosi Subs: He Told Me ‘I Am Finished!’

Giovanni Solinas Has Explained His Kaizer Chiefs Substitutions

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 08, 2018 11:33 AM
Giovanni Solinas has explained the thinking behind his substitutions last night as Kaizer Chiefs were beaten 3-1 by Bidvest Wits at home.
 
 
The Amakhosi are still waiting for their first three points of the season having drawn with Mamelodi Sundowns and been well beaten by the Clever Boys, and the Italian is already coming in for criticism by some of the Glamour Boys’ supporters.
 
Speaking after the game at FNB Stadium on Tuesday, Solinas gave some insight into his subs for the evening, admitting that Leonardo Castro asked to be substituted because he was ‘finished’.
 
The 50-year-old told the media, “We needed more pressure offensively, and this is why we put Paez, to play with the double striker and put more pressure.
 
“Afterwards, Castro said that his energy was finished, and he needed a change. He said. ‘Coach, I am finished’, and this is why we changed him.
 
“I put a fast player like Kabelo, and then the last substitution I took out a defender for a midfielder to try and score in the last 10 minutes.”
 
Chiefs’ next game sees them face Solinas’ old side, Free State Stars, in the MTN8 this weekend.

Why is this man not playing Zuma kodwa???? He is very good that boy and Katsande must make way for young Meyiwa, Parker must make way for Moon and Shabba makes way for Mahlasela.

Benching Zuma, playing Parker and Shabba, introducing Mahlasela late, are factors that will turn us against the coach because these are stupid decisions.

@Mahurubetsi this is my line up, however I feel Dax should be in there in the place of Malongwane, provided his papers are in order. Mahlasela has to come in much earlier.

For me Parker and Khune are the ones that need to chill a bit, hence the selling of Khuzwayo was one of our blunders. Shabba is being played out of position seemingly with an idea to slot Karma there, it hasn't paid off. Truth is our midfield is ok in the center but the sides are infective going forward. The less said about our left back the better

some Chiefs players are a disgrace, they are finished. Khune is so comfortable without competition and he deserve to be reprimanded. nothing wrong with Coaches its senior players who dont pull up their weights.
