Chiefs' chances of securing silverware continue to fade away after they lost 2-1 to the Buccaneers on Saturday afternoon.

Solinas has apologised to the AmaKhosi supporters after suffering back-to-back losses to rivals in recent times.

“It’s very painful to lose the derby. Very disappointed, very painful. We tried, we were fighting. We had the chance also in the last minute two chances, this is football,” the Italian told SuperSport  after the game.

“Maybe if we had scored two [goals] then it’s a different history. The guys tried to fight until the last second but the reality is that we lost the derby, this is very painful.”

“I don’t know about the calendar [year] but we lost two derbies [in a row], this I repeat is very painful. I feel the pain. I apologise to our supporters. We tried our best, we tried everything.

“Football is about the details, the details today were with Pirates. Maybe we score two goals [in the end] and the game is another history. The details is about scoring and not scoring. We score, maybe we equalise and go to extra time and maybe we win on penalties. This is football.”
