Patrick Mabedi: Solinas Never Gave Instructions Against Sundowns

Johannesburg - Acting Kaizer Chiefs coach Patrick Mabedi has insisted that Giovanni Solinas who is waiting for his work permit did not offer him any specific instructions or tactics in their loss against the Brazilians recently. 

Sundowns took the honours with two goals by Jeremy Brockie and Themba Zwane to win the pre-season one-day tournament in front of 30 000 spectators, while Bernard Parker scored Chiefs’ consolation goal with the last kick of the game.

“He is still observing, that is what he is doing for now. He first joined us in North West just to watch and did the same against Sundowns.

“Sundowns gave us a good test and we have to admit that they were the better team on the day. We identified the areas we have to work on going forward. We are still in pre-season and trying different combinations,” said Mabedi. 

He said the technical team was happy with the players and Chiefs only need to fill one more position.

“We are happy with what we have. We just have one position to consider, for the rest of the positions we are sorted. We made a few mistakes and will work hard to rectify them.”

Commenting on the new coach Mabedi said he didn’t require anything from him. On the question of whether Amakhosi would challenge for the league title, Mabedi said they were working towards it.

He said, “We have good players capable of competing. We can do it, we don’t have a bad squad.” - Online Sources
