Mugeyi reflects on Chiefs loss


It looked as if AmaZulu had earned a valuable point against table toppers Kaizer Chiefs, but the Amakhosi struck a winner in the dying seconds of last night’s Absa Premiership game to break Usuthu hearts.

AmaZulu caretaker coach Wilfred Mugeyi reflected on football’s cruel ways following their 2-1 loss to Chiefs at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Usuthu grabbed the lead through Bafana Bafana striker Bongani Ndulula, but were outdone by a George Lebese brace.

The KwaZulu-Natal side have yet to win a game in the league this season and currently occupy bottom spot in the standings with four points from 10 games.

“It was a fantastic game, sometimes football can be cruel,” Mugeyi lamented.

“But I am proud of the boys, we played fantastic football, free-flowing football on both sides.

“You know we are still in transition. I’ve changed a lot of things. I think we can see on our break, we are very quick and play attacking football.

“In the first half we were fantastic, we didn’t give them much room to play. We could see they were getting frustrated. But we lost a bit of concentration and they got the equaliser.

“We kept going forward and unfortunately we gave away a stupid free-kick in the last minute and got punished.

“But I’m proud of my boys, they worked hard and they fought. I think if we keep playing like this we have got a very good chance of moving away from the danger zone.”

AmaZulu’s next game is away to fellow strugglers Platinum Stars on November 22.

    The team played well, though we did not get the result, but there is a lot of improvement. now they are playing attacking football. the future is bright if they carry on to be this mobile.
    however the players go soft as they aproach the eighteen area of the opponents.it is require of the players to put more pressure on the opposition especially upfront.Everyone should try to get a goal regardless what position one plays.
    I think the players should learn to compete with themselves.i.e. try to better ones’performence
    Well played keep pushing forward
