Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas has claimed that Amakhosi improved in the second half of their 1-0 MTN8 semifinal second leg defeat to SuperSport United.
Amakhosi crashed out of the competition at FNB Stadium thanks to a 58th minute Bradley Grobler strike after the two sides had headed into the game level at 2-2.
Despite the fact that they conceded the decisive goal in the second half, Solinas felt that Chiefs were better in that stanza than in the first.
"The first half was difficult because our passing game didn't work. The performance in the first half was not good," Solinas told SuperSport.
"In the second half, we played much better. We created chances. It's a pity because we conceded a goal, but in the second half, the performance was positive."
The Italian added that although the Glamour Boys have squandered a chance to win silverware, they need to regroup and ensure they secure it elsewhere.
"Today, we had a big opportunity to go into the final. It's a very important final for the club, for everyone in the Chiefs family. We are disappointed because we're not going to be in the final," he admitted.
"Now, we need to work hard, because this season, we need to achieve trophies."
