Cape Town - AmaZulu head coach Jozef Vukusic is keen to put the
disappointment of their Telkom Knockout exit behind them as they change focus
to the Absa Premiership.
Usuthu were hammered 5-0 by Mamelodi Sundowns in the first
round of the TKO at Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on Sunday, and Vukusic
lamented the way the game got away from his charges after keeping it tied at
0-0 until just before half-time.
"There was a lot of pressure from Sundowns in the first
half, but I would like to believe that we were okay until we conceded the goal
in the 45th minute," he told the press in a post-match interview.
"I believe that the second and third goal were very
soft goals that were unnecessary.
"There are many areas that we have to work on but it's
okay, we'll go back, and we will learn," he added.
"It was a difficult game, I think we could've done
better in certain instances, but we can't do anything about it now."
Vukusic doesn't want his players dwelling on the heavy
defeat and is eager to see them get back to winning ways against Baroka in the
Absa Premiership on 27 October.
He added: "We now have to focus on the league, make
sure that we get maximum points in the next game and focus on how to move from
where we are in the league."
