The Soweto giants suffered a 1-0 defeat to SuperSport United in their second leg semi-final tie on Saturday evening.
Solinas says his troops had two different performances in the two halves.
“The first half was difficult because our passing game did not work. The performance in the first half was not good,” Solinas told SuperSport TV.
“The second half was much better. We created chances. It’s a pity that we conceded that goal but the second half performance was positive.
“This is football, today we had a big opportunity to go to the final. It was very important for the club and the Chiefs family. It’s a disappointment that we are not going to the final. Now we need to work hard because this season we need to win trophies.
“We need to improve as a team. We will restart our season from the second half [performance],” he concluded.
