" It's difficult " - Chiefs coach talks about the red card and where they went wrong this season


Kaizer Chiefs only had one option and that's to win against Swallows FC yesterday, if they wanted to get the CAF Confederation Cup spot next season. However, Chiefs didnt make it make as they played to a 2-2 draw in the Soweto Derby at FNB Stadium. This meant that Amakhosi failed to keep up with their mandate which was to win a trophy under the leadership of Stuart Baxter. When he was sacked, they had to change the mandate to atleast finishing in the second position which they failed. This has been a disappointing season for Amakhosi and their interim co-coach Arthur Zwane has put things into perspectives.

As he has been at Naturena for the past few decades and felt the 2021/22 season have been difficult in all measures and levels. When Chiefs played against the Dube Birds that showed the glimpse of what has been happening within their campaign. Zwane stated that they made everything difficult for themselves even when they had a chance of punishing their opponents. "It's been a difficult one [season], we made it difficult for ourselves, we started off very well for about 20 minutes we were in the game, we dictated terms," Zwane told SuperSport TV.

Zwane stated that after Phathutshedzo Nange was sent off again Swallows, that's when they started to play accordingly. What was the issue is that Chiefs took their foot of the gas paddle which allowed Swallows back to the game. "You could see we can score at any given time, then as soon as we scored, actually I was even worried you know that we scored too early. After scoring the goal we took the foot off the pedal, now we allowed Swallows to be on top of us and you could see the way they were attacking, they could score at any given time as well," said Zwane speaking to the media.
