The Amakhosi manager led his men to a 2-0 win over Ea Lla Koto at Goble Park Stadium through goals from Gustavo Paez and Philani Zulu, but he said they must continue working hard.
“We played well. I am happy for the result. It's a pity for Free State Stars because it's my former team but this is football,” Solinas told SuperSport TV.
“I am happy for my boys and for the win; they played well. In this game, we needed the team and refresh the players,” he added.
“Everybody performed well, great performance and we need to continue to work really hard to improve,” responded the Chiefs coach.
The Soweto giants' mentor made seven changes in his squad and rested players such as Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Siphelele Ntshangase and Lebogang Manyama among others who played a key role in their 4-1 win over Cape Town City last weekend.
Moreover, Solinas said they will do their regeneration on Wednesday, but there will be some training for those who were rested in Bethlehem.
“Tomorrow [Wednesday], we have regeneration. Only the players who did not play will train and the others will do their regeneration,” he explained.
“After that, we need to rest and to recover our energy to prepare for the next game against AmaZulu. It's a big game at home on Saturday and we need the three points,” added the Italian manager.
“We need to continue on improving our philosophy and we need to focus on our targets and our job – we must not forget that we are Kaizer Chiefs,” he continued.
“We are a big club and the expectations are very high. It is not possible to disappoint our fans. They deserve a great team and they must be happy,” reacted the coach.
“We must put the effort to make our fans happy,” concluded the coach.
