Kaizer Chiefs coach, Muhsin Ertugral has told the media that defender Mokete Tsotetsi has been forgiven for the costly mistake he committed when Chiefs lost to Golden Arrows in the Telkom Knockout last Saturday. The former Jomo Cosmos defender headed home- into his own net- Arrows’ second goal, on the 22nd minute of the game. This got the Amakhosi critics mischievously suggesting that Ertugral might unknowingly have the solution for his goal-scoring problem in Tsotetsi…only if he was played in the ‘right position’, upfront!
Speaking to the Media earlier today Ertugral told the Siya crew that he understood what had happened and that he didn’t hold any grudges against the defender. “I have been a coach for many years now and I understand such things. It’s not about individuals. If the whole team is making mistakes there’s going to be one player who will make the final costly mistake, but if you’ve been in the game long enough you’d understand that it’s not one player’s fault.”
This was Tsotetsi’s second own goal since he joined Chiefs and while others would think that his confidence would be shattered by now, Ertugral told the Media that the defender is still holding his head up. “He’s still confident and I’m sure he will also learn from that mistake.”Said the coach
