City Assistant: We Thought The Chiefs Thrashing Was Coming Again

Cape Town City assistant coach, Vasili Manousakis admitted that there was a time where the technical team thought they were about to suffer another defeat against Orlando Pirates.

City were trailing 2-0 against Pirates in last night’s Absa Premiership encounter but with two goals from Ayanda Patosi, the Citizens came from behind to secure a point at the Orlando Stadium.

Speaking to the media, City assistant coach, Manousakis admitted that he thought another 4-1 trashing like the one suffered against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, was coming after Pirates put two goals pass Peter Leeuwenburgh in the early stages of the game.

“This week we didn’t have much time to train so the turn around between the Chiefs game and now was very quick and all we did really was look to build character and make the guys believe that we can get something out of the game and (conceding) those two goals around 16,17 minutes, we are on the back foot,” Manousakis told the media.

“One more or two more, we could have been in big trouble today. It felt like it was coming again, but it was important that we didn’t show the players what we were feeling and what we thought could possibly happen,” he added.
