Kaizer Chiefs Coach Patrick Mabedi: We Lost Control

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 24, 2018 10:22 PM

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Patrick Mabedi admitted his side lost control after being beaten 3-1 by Golden Arrows on Tuesday night.

The match got off to the worst possible start for the Soweto side, who conceded the opener after only four minutes.

That was followed by a straight red card for Leonardo Castro in the 16th minute, which meant Chiefs had to play around 75 minutes with a man less.

Speaking after the match, though, Mabedi - who replaced Steve Komphela following his resignation as head coach at the weekend - was still proud of his troops.

“We started off very badly. We slept a little bit and I think that affected us more is the red card. Everything went out after that, we lost control,” Mabedi told SuperSport after the game.

“But I have to give credit to the players. They did well, they fought. They showed character, we have to say we tried our best. If you look at the goals we conceded, it looks like to me that we just gave it cheaply, some individual errors, it is one of those things. You keep on going.

“We were good, we tried, we played and had spirit that they showed today.

“If we continue and work on the mistakes that we made today then I think we will go somewhere.”

Mr Motaung if you want to see Chiefs lifting trophies,open the book and sign quality players who will encourage the young stars by showing them how to play football and get the results that will make us happy each and every match.Why is Bunting not getting a chance to prove himself?

We did not lose control, the team plays too slow. Lacks direction, as a results plays backward. Only Tight looks fresh and energetic. We need to sign players with skill and pace. Katsande has played too many games, is tired and needs a rest. Parker needs a special training program, he is slow and sloppy. Maybe he is old. Cardoso is worrying me now, his errors are costly. Tower needs to hit the gym, physically he is weak for a central defender. He needs to be rock-hard like Ntsimbi was.

No credit must go to Chiefs at all, they played badly as usual, too slow and too predictable. Molangoane against another team would not get so much space, he played well but his teammates are slow and weak. Why are Chiefs fans so cool with what is happening? This was never about Steve but abo Shabba Parker Khune Katsande Matho, Masilela, Maluleke not wanting the team to move forward. They should leave our team. Doing the same thing and expect different results is really disgusting now. Let these old players go.

Despite the loss credit must be given where it due, to me Molongoane was superbly awesome lastnyt ,had he had people playin with the same spirit as his, we would've won this 1,1 other thing i think the couch must just give the younger players a chance to prove themselves 4 the remaining fixtures instead of these tried n tested madalas please

Castro was very stupid to have committed that reckless and dangerous tackle.
