Mabedi: How Ajax Tried To Get Chiefs Starlet Sent Off

Patrick Mabedi Said Muhsin Ertugral Made Him Substitute A Kaizer Chiefs Player

By Soccer Laduma - May 15, 2018 11:03 AM

Patrick Mabedi had to take off one of his players against Ajax Cape Town, saying that Muhsin Ertugral’s tactics were to get him sent off.

Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya was given just his second start of the season as the Amakhosi went up against the Urban Warriors in Cape Town, with Ertugral’s side chasing a win as they looked to try and climb up out of the relegation play-off spot.

The 21-year-old was shown a first half yellow card with the score locked at 0-0, and Mabedi – who knows Ertugral from his playing days – says that he had to take action and pull the youngster off in the 55th minute.

He told the club’s official website, “Knowing Muhsin, I could early in the match see a few of their tactics… I pulled out Ntiya-Ntiya when I noticed they were piling pressure on him because he had a booking already. They wanted to force him to commit another foul, earn a second booking and given marching orders. I was quick to respond to that tactic.

“I had a job to do. I learnt a lot from Muhsin but I had to do the job for Chiefs. We knew winning this match would get us into the CAF Confederation Cup.”

Chiefs went on to win the game 2-1, joining Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates in the next edition of CAF’s inter-club competition, with Mabedi managing to end his reign as interim coach on a high.

Ntiya-Ntiya, meanwhile, is one player that Chiefs fans will be hoping to see more of next season as they look to see a revitalised Amakhosi in the Absa Premiership.

Mabedi next time keep your assumption and using previous experience with other coaches to yourself. Because that benefitted a team you were part of. other teams coordinate with refs to let their players dive and be given set pieces, score from offside position, score with a hand, misjudged opposition offside, score during exaggerated extra time

Muhsin could have intermediated the boy with a chair as we all know that sometimes he could just grab a chair out of frustration and........... Put it down. And after these news I officially saying he must go to nfd and come back five years to come

I wonder why Steve did not continue to use Ntiya-ntiya on the left. He is stronger and faster than Zulu. Eish Steve, maar.

That is interesting and to say at halftime he instructed Shabba and Malongoane to go far wide in order to attack Ajax. Hmmmmmm.
