Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas says he hadn't seen a pitch in South Africa as bad as the one they played on over the weekend against Golden Arrows.However, the Glamour Boys slumped to a 2-1 defeat - their fourth league defeat of the season - in Durban on Saturday.
The result left them in seventh place on the Absa premiership standings with 18 points from 14 games.
I do not keep in mind in South Africa seeing a pitch like this," Solinas said.
I conjointly coached Free State Stars however i do not bear in mind a terrible pitch like this. i do not bear in mind."
After a recent 2-1 defeat to Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout semi-finals, Solinas modified his centre-back pairing from Mario Booysen and Siyabonga Ngezana to Eric Mathoho and young Hadebe.
However both men conceded penalties, that were punctually slotted by Limbikani Mzava in KwaMashu, with Leonardo Castro pulling one back after the break for the Away.
Solinas said it absolutely was robust to handle Abafana Bes'thende's counter-attacking strategy.
They Saturday back," the Italian aforesaid.
They defended for 90 minutes. They solely contend on the counter. we knew they play counter-attack. they need quick players in front, they're dangerous.
But in two situations we gave them chance behind the defence line and that we did not manage the house within the right manner.
In all situations for ninety minutes the boys were fighting. The pitch was terrible but they contend. They created the possibilities."
Solinas s side can face Zimamoto within the second leg of their Confederation Cup preliminary round tie at Amaan stadium in island tonight (18h00).
