Ernst Middendorp calls out Kaizer Chiefs players’ attitude


“We were the ones who were leading but again it’s all about the energy, how we approach this game through the entire game. We haven’t done it right. Bloemfontein Celtic are a difficult side to play against.”


During the post-match virtual press conference, Middendorp delved deeper, but the 61-year-old remained calm when responding to reporters.

What did Middendorp “learn” from the defeat? His answer was brief and simple.

“If you win a game, you will learn. If you draw or lose a game you will learn too,” he said with a wry smile.

The defeat now leaves Chiefs with just a six-point lead over Mamelodi Sundowns who have one game in hand.

On Friday, the Brazilians could close the gap to three points with a victory against Maritzburg United.

Meanwhile, Amakhosi are next in action against Stellenbosch FC on Sunday.
