Ntseki looking at the positives

The most important thing is for us to understand the three types of results. We played this game looking to have a win and when you don’t win the game, yes you are disappointed, but you also look at the positives,” the Kaizer Chiefs coach said as quoted by TimesLive.

“The positives are that we had very good ball possession, we had very good tactical movements going forward in shifting play and changing points of attack.

“And it’s hard work for the players to get into those goalscoring positions. It’s for them to understand our approach in attack.”

Kaizer Chiefs are improving – Rhulani

“It’s going to be very difficult. Contrary to what the results may suggest. We are playing against a very good side, a very improved Kaizer Chiefs team.” – Rhulani Mokwena said as quoted by IOL.

“We want to try to win every match at Mamelodi Sundowns. Regardless of whatever advantage or disadvantage we may have. If the score had stayed at 1-0 and we had not found the equaliser, the attitude would still be.”
