Following their Premier Soccer League (PSL) defeat to Golden Arrows, Kaizer Chiefs coach Giovanni Solinas says they did not deserve to lose the match on Saturday evening.

The Italian manager stated that they created a lot of chances, but the Glamour Boys could only convert one on the night.

“We don’t deserve to lose this game. We dominated completely the game. We don’t deserve to lose,” Solinas told SuperSport TV.

The defeat for the Soweto giants follows their convincing 4-0 win over Zimamoto of Zanzibar in their Caf Confederation Cup match on Wednesday night, but losing in the league has left a bitter pill to swallow for the coach.

“You watched the game? How many chances did we create? How many chances did the opponent create? We dominated completely the game,” he added.

Although, he lamented the fact that his strikers failed to bury their chances, the former Free State Stars mentor explained that he doesn't want to talk about referees or point fingers at his players.

“I don’t want to talk about the penalty [penalties] and the referee. The opponent did not create nothing, two counter-attacks, two penalties we lose the game. This is football,” continued the coach.

The Amakhosi boss also rued his players' lack of composure in the box.

“Football is simple, I don’t want to talk about the individual performance or the departments. We lose together, we win together,” reacted the coach.

“Stop to be naive. We make silly mistakes. Normally in professional football we pay cash for these silly mistakes. We need to pay attention and not make silly mistakes. We’ll continue to work hard,” he concluded.
