Neeskens: They were better

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens believes that Kaizer Chiefs were the better side and deserved the 2-0 win over his men on Wednesday night.

The Brazilians suffered a major blow to their title hopes as the result leaves Orlando Pirates three points clear at the top with two games to go.

Neeskens felt that the first goal was decisive and was not happy with the passing in the final third from his side on the night.

"I think until the moment they scored the goal it was even. It was not an excellent game. A lot of things went wrong in the passing, especially also the final pass and the crossing. It was very good against Santos but today(Wednesday) I didn't see," he said.

"I knew also who is going to score first is going to win. After the 1-0, of course they dropped back and tried to play the counter. From that moment I thought they were the better team.

"Over the full 90 minutes, they won it and they deserved to win it."

When asked about his attacking substitutions in the second-half, he added: "You try to do something because you have to know that three days we played a game. So this is our second game, we have Saturday a game. We have a lot of injuries, we have a lot of yellow cards and you have to find out what is the best solution.

"But you try everything and at the end it didn't help, but overall I think they deserved to win."
