Furious Arthur Zwane claims Kaizer Chiefs players expected a “easy game” against Chippa United

Arthur Zwane, head coach of the Kaizer Chiefs, criticized his team’s complacency in their loss to Chippa United, stating that he and his players must take a closer look at themselves in the wake of the shocking loss.

Saturday evening at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, Chiefs suffered their first ‘home’ loss of the season, falling 2-1 to Chippa.

Edmilson Dove’s own goal in the 91st minute secured a come-from-behind victory for the Chilli Boys, preventing Chiefs from climbing to the top of the DStv Premiership standings.

“I believe we won the game before it even began. You could see at the beginning of the game that we were a touch lethargic and that we believed the game would be simple “Zwane revealed to SuperSport TV.

“At halftime I had to wake them up a bit because in the first half, even if we scored the goal, we didn’t dictate terms, we lacked character, and we let them to do anything they wanted,” the coach said.

The Glamour Boys recorded a total of 19 shots on goal against Chippa United, with six of them being on target. Caleb Bimenyimana and Keagan Dolly both missed excellent scoring opportunities for the Chiefs.

Zwane, visibly irritated, bemoaned his players’ failure to implement their pre-match strategies and lamented the wasted opportunities in front of goal as a result of a better second half performance.

“If we had begun the same manner we began the second, we would have been more successful. If we had placed them under pressure and forced them to make errors like we did in the final minute, consider how many opportunities we could have created “He elucidated.

Prior to this loss, Chiefs had a seven-game unbeaten record in all competitions, drawing within two points of the league-leading Mamelodi Sundowns, and Zwane believes this loss will significantly affect their development in the next games.

“We have only ourselves to blame. This is a game that could have bolstered our confidence, but we let ourselves down tremendously, and I hope we can learn from this “Zwane continued dejectedly:

In midweek, Amakhosi will face a struggling TS Galaxy team, which will require them to pick themselves up swiftly.
