Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp admits that he is still in shock over Amakhosi’s defeat to TS Galaxy in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.
The Glamour Boys conceded a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of the National First Division (NFD) outfit at tje Moses Mabhuda Stadium as their search for silverware continues heading into a new season.
‘It’s something [like] you think you’re in a dream but congratulations to TS Galaxy. It was a good second half, we pressurised and got the final third entries but, it’s not the first time, probably the entire six months now,’ Middendorp told SuperSport TV after the game.
‘It’s the same story, we are not finalising our movements. Then in the end we got caught by a penalty like this. I don’t know if it was a penalty, I don’t know if it was an offside. I have no idea, but good we haven’t scored and that’s the story.
‘It was better in the second half but in the end when you’re not finalising the moves, the penetration and not being calm in the final third, you’re not good and you end up like this.’
Speaking about how he plans to fix the team during the pre-season, Middendorp says he is disappointed and still in shock and apologised to the Amakhosi faithfuls after their defeat to Galaxy.
‘At this time I can [only] say sorry, the support was fantastic they came from all over the country to really make it happen. At the moment it’s shocking, a huge disappointment really,’ he concluded.
