Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Ernst Middendorp on Tuesday denied being defensive-minded in his tactics after numerous claims that his side is too negative.
Chiefs moved back to the top of the Absa Premiership table after claiming a 2-0 away win over AmaZulu at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday.
Two late goals by Leonardo Castro in the 84th minute and Khama Billiat in stoppage time secured the win for a delighted Middendorp as his side moved to 13 points after 6 games.
The German - whose side are only behind Bidvest Wits in the scoring charts - defended his tactics after numerous claims that his side is too defensive.
"I said it several times but I don't know where these rumours are coming from that I am a defensive coach," Middendorp said in a post-match interview.
"I have no idea. We have really done the repetition in the scouting where we need several of our attacking players such as keeping Castro that makes it more variable for us.
"These players were not there last season and I think with these attacking players back and in form. When you have all the ingredients only then can you prepare a good meal," he said.
