Cape Town - AmaZulu caretaker coach Wilfred Mugeyi expressed how cruel football can be after his side narrowly lost 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs in last night's Premiership encounter.
Mugeyi's bottom-placed Usuthu had the leaders sweating after they drew first blood in the 22nd minute at Moses Mabhida Stadium through Bongani Ndulula.Chiefs' George Lebese then equalised on the hour before scoring a stoppage-time winner.
"It was a fantastic game, sometimes football can be cruel. But I am proud of my boys, we played fantastic football, free-flowing football on both sides," KickOff.com website quotes Mugeyi as saying.
"You know we are still in our transition. I've changed a lot of things. I think we can see on our break, we are very quick and played attacking football.
"In the first half we were fantastic, we didn't give them much room to play. We could see they were getting frustrated. But we lost a bit of concentration and they got an equaliser.
"We kept going forward and unfortunately we gave away a stupid free-kick in the last minute and got punished.
"But I'm proud of my boys, they worked hard and they fought. I think if we keep playing like this we have got a very good chance of moving away from the danger zone," concluded the 'Silver Fox'.
