Mabedi Admits Sundowns’ Superiority Over Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs’ assistant coach, Patrick Mabedi, has admitted that Mamelodi Sundowns deserved to beat them in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup, saying that maybe it was a blessing in disguise.
New signing, Khama Billiat, was voted as Man of the Match in the encounter against his former team over the weekend, however, the Zimbabwean was unable to stop his new employers from being beaten 2-1 thanks to goals from Jeremy Brockie and Themba Zwane. Bernard Parker got a late consolation.
Now, with the Glamour Boys preparing themselves for the upcoming Absa Premiership season, Mabedi believes that there are some things to learn from their defeat against Masandawana.
He told the club’s official website, “Sundowns were the better team on the day. I’m glad they gave us a good game.
“We will take some points from the match to go forward with our pre-season preparations. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise to lose during (the) preparation phase. This will allow us a chance to see where we are with our preparations.”
Next up for Kaizer Chiefs is an encounter with Cape Town City at the Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup on Saturday at 3pm at Mbombela Stadium.
