Mabedi: Chiefs Have To Finish In A Respectable Position

Mabedi: Chiefs Have To Finish In A Respectable Position

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 29, 2018 10:31 AM

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Patrick Mabedi has hailed the importance of the Soweto giants finishing as high as possible in the Absa Premiership.

Goals from Gustavo Paez and Dumisani Zuma saw the Soweto giants record a 2-0 win over Maritzburg United on Saturday afternoon.

Mabedi made three changes from their recent loss to Golden Arrows, which he feels paid dividends on the day.

“It worked, we looked at the left because we know they would be coming for more combination and we also tried to play them with pace and force them going wide whereby they are strong in the middle because they always overload the midfield," Mabedi told SuperSport TV.

“So that we force them to go wide whereby we know we can deal with the long balls and we did exactly that and the players executed it nicely and it lead to the win at the end of the day.

“I think as I said earlier it was very important for us to win and come back to a respectable position and I’m happy because the message was clear to the players with clear instructions.

“And this boost us also to be in the third position and we need to fight because it’s not over until it’s over. We still got one game to go and this break will help us because we didn’t have time to work on certain things.

“We have to be more practical in our play with more organisation at the back. As time goes, we can get it right but I believe the players will do well."

@Xolisa{khosificated}, THE ONLY FACTOR THAT DESTROYED BARBARIANS IS THAT MATCH OFFICIALS ARE NOT LONGER INTERESTED IN BOBBY'S BROWN ENVELOPES AND THE FACT REMAINS WE NEED TO PARTCIPATE CLUBS CAF FOR THE BENEFITS OF NATIONAL ASSET AND DUNUS' PARTICIPATING IS USELESS CAUSE OF MORE DEPENDING ON FOREIGN NATIONALS ON THEIR DEPTH SQUAD

To me this Caf Confed Cup is a waste of time. Almost all the teams that go there comeback unhealthy. Take a look at Ajax for example. They went to that kaka n comeback suffering with something I don't evn know. Now they're there underneath. Rats also went there and it took almost to years to recover. Supersport also played there last year now they are find themselves on a relegation zone with 1 game left. Even Dikwena went there to that kaka cup and they came back as a dying man. They are no longer PSL team as we speak. I wish Ajax can beat us so that we can focus on recovering next season
