Mabedi: Third Was A Respected Position To Finish For Chiefs
Patrick Mabedi Has Commented On Kaizer Chiefs Season
Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach, Patrick Mabedi admitted that it was a difficult season for the team but finishing off third was a respected position for Amakhosi.
The Soweto giants secured the third spot on the Absa Premiership league standings, booking their place in the CAF Confederation Cup next year.
Speaking to the media, Mabedi admitted that Chiefs should have finished off the season with at least one piece of silverware.
“It was not an easy season for us, we should at least get one silverware, we know the only credit to give back to the supporters is to finish third on a respected position and we can’t try and to rely on another team to do it for us we need to do it by ourselves, so this is only an objective that we had and we made the players aware that we need to make sure we go out there and do our best so that we can finish at third which gives us an opportunity to play in Africa,” Mabedi said after the teams 2-0 victory over Ajax Cape Town.
“I have to say that I learn a lot from my coach over here (Muhsin Ertugral) I learnt a lot that when you play in Africa you have a good experience and I think that it is important for these young ones to learn and help us in the national team,” he added.
