Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Steve Komphela felt his side gave away too many matches during the course of the Absa Premiership season.
The AmaKhosi ended the campaign with a 1-0 win over Champions Bidvest Wits thanks to a late strike from Gustavo Paez.
Chiefs ended a the game in fourth spot, 10 points behind Wits, and Komphela claims they just gave away too many matches.
"Any explanation in football comes across as an excuse. I would do what Steve does, keep quiet, move on and do the business but if I were to answer the question I think we gave it away," Komphela told SuperSport after the game.
"In eight matches we gave away 18 points in a manner that was not supposed to be. From where we are sitting 18 points would give us how many points... I've lost the mathematics. It will tell you.
"There's many matches we gave away, key matches. Telkom Knockout we lost on penalties... SuperSport we lost on penalties. Orlando Pirates with five minutes to go we missed a penalty. But as a coach you can't highlight those, they come across as excuses."
"You man up, own up, put it on your chest and move on. I hope we've learned lessons this season. It's about Bidvest Wits congratulations to them and let's not steal their shine."
When asked about Chiefs' 1-0 win over the league champions, he replied,"In any football match you want to win. Even on the game of cards if you're competitive enough you must win.
"The only thing that one can point at is that just after scoring the goal... I'm sensing something like a protest from Bidvest Wits. The referee had stopped play and bounced the ball and (George) Maluleka flipped the ball to (William) Twala which resulted into the goal.
"Under any normal circumstances they are protesting that maybe we did not give them the ball back. I'm not justifying but let them take the glory and not cloud it with small things that we can ignore. Congratulations to them. We will move on and face next season."
