Cape Town - Bidvest Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo revealed his deep dissatisfaction after Bidvest Wits finished the season with no silverware to show for their efforts.
The university club could only muster a second place finish in the Premiership after Mamelodi Sundowns easily clinched the title.
The Bafana Bafana defender feels that injuries to key players derailed their title objectives throughout the season.
"We were on track at one point in the season and only four points behind Sundowns. The squad was riddled with injuries, Phakamani, James, Papy and even myself," Hlatshwayo said on the club's website.
"Coach Gavin (Hunt) and Jose (club CEO Ferreira) told me that I should not be hard on myself but of course, I take not lifting a trophy personally. I got injured at a very crucial time in the season.
"I personally feel that I was absent when the team needed me the most. As much as any player in the team I really wanted to win the league and lift a trophy.
"As a team, we wanted to push Mamelodi Sundowns to the end and we lost that momentum.
"The only thing we have to do now in the new season is to focus on winning and taking the number one spot. We need to win cups and if we start well in the MTN8 the team will most definitely have a good season."
