Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt says that football is a game of mistakes, and wouldn’t single out Itumeleng Khune’s error in Chiefs’ game on Wednesday night.
Chiefs had to fight back from two goals down in their DSTV Premiership game against Black Leopards after Ovidy Karuru’s early brace gave Lidoda Duvha a surprise lead.
The first goal conceded came from an uncharacteristic mistake from Khune, as his attempted clearance went straight to Karuru, who calmly slotted the ball into the goal.
But Hunt says any mistake is disappointing and he was just pleased they stuck together and made a comeback, and feels they could have even won the game in the end.
“Any mistake on any football pitch is disappointing, ja, you know, and everybody makes mistakes‚ but it’s very disappointing but that’s football‚ it is a game of mistakes, so it happens,” Hunt said in the digital presser after the game.
“We’ve just got to stick together, and we stuck together‚ we were calm at half time, made the shape changes that I thought worked and then it was one-way traffic in the second half.”
“In saying that I thought we could have won the game‚ that’s for sure, but from where we were it was a good comeback and we’ve just got to keep working.”
