Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has come out in defence of Siyabonga Ngezana after the defender committed two silly mistakes that led to goals in the 4-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.
Ngezana’s under-hit back pass failed to reach goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma and Gaston Sirino pounced on the ball and opened the scoring for Sundowns .
The defender then brought down Peter Shalulile inside the penalty and the Namibian striker double Sundowns’ lead from the spot.
“It’s unlike him and he is one of our best defenders in one one one situations but he was not at his best. He committed an error that killed his confidence,” said Zwane.
“These things happen in football, I am not going to kill him because of that, I will try to help him lift his spirit up at training,” he added.
