Slippery gloves gave Chiefs ticket to Final

Santos goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng blames his gloves for goal

Posted: 22 November 2010 Time: 11:57 am

Santos goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng blames his gloves for the mistake that allowed Kaizer Chiefs to score their winning goal during the Telkom Knockout Cup semi-final game in Polokwane on Saturday.

Motsoeneng gifted Amakhosi striker Knowledge Musona a soft goal after he dropped a cross by Simphiwe Tshabalala which allowed Zimbabwean international to sneak in and set the Phefeni Glamour Boys enroute to the Final.

Speaking to KickOff.com on his return to Cape Town, Motsoeneng conceded that he should have done better with the cross in the 116th minute.

''I made that mistake of not changing my gloves, which were slippery, at the start of the extra-time. I caught the first ball in the first five minutes of the extra-time and felt comfortable with them, so I did not see the need to change them.

“I also made the mistake of not jumping with my left knee high as the ball was coming from left flank, otherwise I may have been able to recover quickly after dropping the ball. I also could have done the simple thing and punch the ball away.”

Motsoeneng says he has already put behind him his disappointment and promises to bounce back in great style.

“My teammates have been supportive of me, saying I have saved them in many other situations.”

The Santos goalkeeper also lost his jersey in the process. He took it off to hide his tears in front of the TV cameras at the Peter Mokaba Stadium and now it has disappeared.

“I don’t know where it is although I still have to check if one of the other the guys picked it up.”

I thought he was too clever to make those schoolboy mistakes. Last time I checked Chiefs was not a threat to you. I was happy that your time delay tricks came back to hurt you. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw your arrogant violent behavior with your tears. Now you know why you are not in Bafana plans. Too old to talk about I forgot, I forgot.

That ball was no meant for sani, there was no wet gloves. when did you realise that they were wet? since i never saW you spilling the ball except the cross that was not for you. heheheh i you still dreaming about oversees? where is that cow camara...tell him to also dream about so called medal and the final. those erros are the reason why Khune and Josephs will always be above you mtshana.

Motsoeneng, you and your team mates wanted to play the penalty shootout hence the deffencive approach.... You never wanted to win the game against the run of play.. I cant say I fill pity for you because you play the most boring football I have ever seen.
On the wet gloves issue... Dont you carry a towel to wipe your gloves like Khune and Josephs in case they get wet?

He looks like Phlip Ndou the boxer.They can go far in their careers but what's holding them back is excitement and ukuphapha.

What he did on Saturday night ,we former players call it experience,in a sense that even a harmless slow moving ball one needs to ensure that you hold on to it tight and not showboat because of previous experience.He is still young though and is South African.

they relied too much on stealling the game against us again. you know what, they used to complain about Major Bright being gdefensive and BoB as an attacker..what is happening now? 12 behind the ball(including solomons)..we deserved to win ie 60:40% possession actually futbal won

You were very happy happy to get Chiefs the other day after the draw. I now understand why you wanted to play us! You talk too much! that is a very good message you sent to Pitso after crying almost every day for a place in Bafana! Go hang!

he probably started by having wet dreams and eventually his gloves became wet in the process that's why he forgot to jump...

Motsoeneng is always suspect whenever balls are crossed into his area. On saturday, he was the victim of his over excitement and what really bored me was his time-delaying tactics even when the scores were at 0-0!! To the rest of Santos team, it was a good lesson. You cant play defensively for 120 minutes with the hope of penalties.
