Ntseki provides strange excuses for Kaizer Chiefs defeat to Galaxy

Kaizer Chiefs suffered a 1-0 defeat to bogey team TS Galaxy on Sunday. Head coach Molefi Ntseki pinpointed four reasons for it.

Four reasons why Chiefs lost, according to Ntseki

LACK OF MATCH SHARPNESS

Ntseki told SuperSport TV his charges weren’t as sharp as their opponents.

“We didn’t look as sharp as we were supposed to be,” Ntseki said. “On the physical side of things, I think we weren’t very sharp. We’ve got another full week for the players to recover. If you look back at the intensity of the game, they were more sharper than us.”

Chiefs next face AmaZulu on Saturday 26th.

SECOND TO EVERYTHING

Ntseki was also annoyed that Chiefs were second to virtually every ball on the pitch. Chiefs enjoyed the majority of the possession, but Galaxy produced 17 shots at their goal. Amakhosi managed just two shots on target in total.

“We were almost second on everything, whether in attack or in the box.”

LACK OF AGGRESSION

Molefi Ntseki believes his Chiefs charges lacked aggression, especially after losing possession of the football.

“After losing possession, we weren’t aggressive. That is why we were second in everything. But I think on the balance of play; we applied ourselves. In terms of structure, we just made a mistake that led to the goal. But it’s something we can work on.”

POOR FINISHING 

Ranga Chivaviro’s header from close range cleared the bar and his replacement Christian Saile also missed the target by inches. Head coach Ntseki believes that they could have won the game had they converted their opportunities.

“It’s unfortunate that the chances we got, we didn’t bury those chances,” he said.
