Zwane On Chiefs CAFCL Final Qualification
Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane was full of praise for his players after they eliminated Wydad Casablanca from the CAF Champions League to book their ticket in the final.
The 47-year-old had a depleted squad at his disposal after Leonardo Castro and Bruce Bvuma were not available for selection.
Zwane said that his team followed his tactics very well but could’ve done better going forward.
“Look we knew that if were able to contain them until after 25 minutes in the first, they were going to be frustrated,” he told reporters at the post-match press conference.
“They threw a lot of bodies forward and there was space that we could exploit.
“We had about two really good chances, which we could’ve converted.
“We knew that at some point we were gonna drop in terms of energy levels. So we had to contain ourselves and we had to maintain our energies.
“I must give credit to the boys, they remained sharp and focussed.”
Chiefs will now face the winner of the second leg between Al Ahly and Esperance in the final next month, with Pitso Mosimane’s side leading the tie 1-0 after the first leg.
