Cape Town - Siphiwe Tshabalala has called on Kaizer Chiefs players to
put a difficult week behind them, saying they should re-group and fight for the
Chiefs on Tuesday suffered a 3-1 loss to Golden Arrows in
the Absa Premiership, which comes a few days after a semi-final defeat to Free State
Stars in the Nedbank Cup.
The loss to Ea Lla Koto led to Steve Komphela resigning as
the head coach of the club.
Tshabalala admitted that his side was not at their best
against Arrows and were punished for it.
Tshabalala told Supersport: "I think we were sloppy at
the beginning of the game and we got punished.
“I think we did our best especially in the first half. There
was a point where we were in control and got rewarded with an equalizer.
"I think we got them there and second half again we
were sloppy and got punished.
“So we had to chase the game and towards the end we had to
risk and fight for a point, but sadly we suffered a setback.”
The experienced midfielder admitted that they have not had
the best of seasons having not won a trophy, but said his side can regroup and
fight for the club’s badge.
Tshabalala added: “I think one would say it was not the best
of seasons considering the fact that we did not win anything.
“We just gave our best, but we were not consistent, I mean
there is no other Chiefs than this one. So we have to pick ourselves up,
regroup and fight for the badge.
“We just need to keep
pushing, do our best and show commitment in each and every game.”
