Kaizer Chiefs head coach Giovanni Solinas was left unhappy with his side’s uninspired and meek performance against Polokwane City in their Premier Soccer League (PSL) match at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday evening.
Kaizer Chiefs suffered a somewhat surprise 0-1 loss to Polokwane City. Solinas was critical of how his team went about the game and didn’t enjoy what he saw in the first half of the match. Solinas pointed out his men looked slow, lacked mobility and seemed unable to deal with attacks.
The match took place in an empty stadium as Kaizer Chiefs started serving the punishment handed down by the PSL’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) for the infamous stadium riot which took place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in April.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Kaizer Chiefs have been forced to play two matches behind closed doors as punishment with a third match suspended for a period of 24 months.
Kickoff.co.za reported that Solinas commented before the game that he felt the punishment would have a negative effect on his players. Solinas said he expected the atmosphere in the stadium to be funeral like.
Solinas said the club’s supporters were like an extra player and pushed his side to play out of their skins.
Speaking after the match Solinas said the first half was a disaster but his players improved their performance in the second half. He congratulated Polokwane on their win.
The loss brought Kaizer Chiefs’ seven-match unbeaten run to a halt.
