Chiyangi admits Kaseba is a poor finisher but defends his selection
Zambia national team interim coach Aggrey Chiyangi admitted that striker Tapson Kaseba is very poor in terms of finishing off chances. Chiyangi, however, defended his selection in the starting line up that drew 2-2 with Eswatini saying he is a hard worker who runs tirelessly.
Kaseba started in attack for the Copper Bullets on Saturday against Eswatini but missed a number of changes including a one that he was left with only the goal to beat but somehow fluffed his line.
“I wish one day you become a coach so that you understand what the fans don’t understand. When you planning for a game you have to look at your opponent’s and see which players can help you.”
“It’s unfortunate that Tapson is very poor on finishing but when you defending he helps a lot . What he just needs to do is work on his finishing but when you play a good team like these guys you need such players who can run up and down. There are so many players who the fans cry for but they should see how they play both in attack and defense,” Chiyangi told the ZamFoot Crew.
“If you look at Swaziland the reason the scored is that we defended badly. We gave them so much space, Why because we were failing to track them, That’s what we look at. People can cry for a player but there are so many things we consider.”
“Its the player. When you miss a chance it’s about the player and not the coach. The chances we had were clear cut chances so if you miss such a chance what do you say ?” he added.
Zambia gave away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Eswatini but managed to qualify to the 2020 Cameroon CHAN tournament 3-2 on aggregate.
