AmaZulu 'committed suicide'

Mamelodi Sundowns

Usuthu were handed one of their heaviest defeats by the Brazilians in Tshwane last night, and were already 4-0 down at half-time.

Their biggest loss is 8-1 to SuperSport United in 2004.

Mugeyi stepped up for the post-match press conference in the absence of Craig Rosslee, who was locked in a meeting with the players straight after the game.

“We are disappointed with the result,” Mugeyi says. “Sundowns played well and utilised their chances. We were away off the pace and always second on the ball.

“We were not sharp enough as a result of not playing for a long time. Sundowns had the advantage, after playing at the weekend – we only last played about three weeks ago.”

AmaZulu’s last match action was a 2-0 loss in the Telkom Knockout to Free State Stars on October 5.

However, Mugeyi says it is the technical team’s job to help the players get back on track, and he says he is looking forward to their next match against Maritzburg United in Durban on Saturday.

“I can’t say it was a lack of concentration but if you give the ball away and concede a goal in the first minute against a team like Sundowns ... that is like commiting suicide. That’s what we did today.

“It’s now up to us as technical staff to rectify our mistakes and lift the boys up. We look forward to redeem ourselves in our next game at the weekend.”
