Neeskens slams Downs display

2012-08-23 10:08

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens was far from impressed following his team's 2-1 loss to Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday night.

The Brazilians went down to strikes by Siyabonga Nkosi and Kingston Nkatha at FNB Stadium, with Clayton Daniels's ricocheting effort forcing a consolation own goal by Amakhosi skipper Itumeleng Khune.

Neeskens said afterwards, "We did it to ourselves. In the first half we controlled the game. We had more of the possession but then after (the break) Chiefs were winning all the second balls, the 50/50s. We gave them all the time."

The Dutchman added, "We have to look ahead but first I will watch the game again and analyse it."

Downs, who outclassed Chiefs 4-1 in the MTN8 quarter-finals, next visit Moroka Swallows in the last-four of the competition on Sunday. The teams drew their first leg duel 3-3 in Tshwane this past weekend.

      @fran.aphane, I agree with you. After selfish-driven signings what do they have to show for it. As for abrammothibedi.abram, shame, sour grapes neh!!! It always a wise not to comment if you're still hurt.

    it's always funny how quickly Chiefs supporters 4get, just 2 weeks ago there very same team gave you a drubbing and then you have balls to claim that respect has been restored. the way i see it Sundowns have everything given the fact that they are still in the same competition that Chiefs is no longer part of and still stand as much chance of winning the Legue as Chiefs with the only dfference being 3 points.
