We Played With Fear Against Sundowns

Chippa United interim coach Vladislav Heric felt his charges played with fear against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Goals from Percy Tau and Khama Billiat condemned the Chilli Boys to a 2-0 defeat at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday evening.

Heric says Chippa gave the Brazilians too much respect on the field instead of playing according to the game plan.

“I’m not disappointed with the way my boys played, we were spot on tactically but that was not enough. A big team like Sundowns is difficult to beat whether you’re spot on or not,” Heric told SuperSport after the game.

“We knew that whoever was going to score first was going to win the match. We had a one-on-one with the goalkeeper (Denis Onyango), if we could have scored it we would be talking a different story now.

“But the reality is something else. Technically we were poor from my point of view. We gave a lot of balls away. I believe it’s also a mental problem where we over-respect the team. We were playing with fear, looking more at them than what we agreed upon. We were worried about them than what we were supposed to do.”
