Chiyangi comes to Muchindu’s defence
Green Eagles head coach Aggrey Chiyangi has vowed to work hard with the team’s left-back Boston Muchindu who had a tough time in Eagle’s 2-1 home loss to Angola’s Primeiro de Agosto in the first leg pre-group CAF Champions League encounter played at Lusaka’s National Heroes
Stadium on Saturday 14th September 2019.
Speaking in an Interview with the ZamFoot Crew, Chiyangi said Boston was the better option for the left-back position despite not playing very well in the game which he said could have been due to lack of game time but he believes he will surely pick up going forward.
“Boston did not do well in the game, he was defending against a very good player with speed. The other option we had who could have played at the left-back is a bit slower than Boston. So the best was to keep him and try to give him advice on how he can contain the striker, but we really need to work hard with him and I think the only thing is that he has been off for a long time but as he continues playing games he’s going to pick up,” he said.
The Eagles gaffer was left wondering on how his defenders conceded a second goal but he was quick to react that he can’t blame the whole defense because he analyzes things differently and has tasked his players to always defend and play as a team and not to relax on the pitch.
“When we talk about conceding people always look at the last line of defense which is the back 4 but as a coach I don’t analyze things like that because if you look at the second goal it was just all about carelessness and then secondly were the ball came from that cross the person who was there did not apply himself very effectively where you go in with so much Aggression to say you don’t want this guy to kick the ball he was a bit relaxed and he allowed him to chip that ball so it starts from there that is why you when you defend you defend as a team you must be able to see the options,” Chiyangi said.
The Kawale Boys will get back to the field of play against Agosto on September 29 away in Angola at the November 11 Stadium to determine who progresses to the group stage and who will drop to the Confederation Cup.
