The Citizens remain winless in 2021 after suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Soweto giants at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening.

After Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Happy Mashiane gave Chiefs a two-goal advantage, the Dutch coach felt City were the better side for the rest of the game.

"We lost it in the first 20 minutes and that especially has to do with, we have the ball, they have the ball, that also has to do with the rest defence and I think we were very, not organised but not alert," Riekerink told SuperSport after the match.

"Everybody knows what to do and we gave away too much pace and lost two times the ball when there was transition, I think from minute 20 we were the better team. I'm very happy we created chances and that is one of the things that was not good from the last matches.

"We created chances, in the second-half I must give my team compliments, I think not even lucky we should have scored the two opportunities we had in the last minute, we should have scored a goal," he said.

"This team was capable of beating Kaizer Chiefs, we knew if they drop back they will let us make the game and if you make the game you lose the ball, you're far away from your own goal and we had to be careful on these opportunities we gave away," he added.
