Dynamos head coach, Tonderai Ndiraya says he was disappointed by the Dynamos performance yesterday in Chibuku super Cup group tournament where they played a stalemate match with Herentals.
Dynamos secured a 0-0 draw with Herentals but Ndiraya insisted that his side’s performance was frustrating as they managed to get only one shot on target in the entire 90 minutes of action.
The former Dynamos football legend added that his side didn’t adapt positively into the game and it ended on a bad note between him and the Dynamos players however Ndiraya accepted that their rivals were smarter than them in ball distribution.
“We really were very slow on transition, when we got the ball we didn’t know what to do with it, so, that was really frustrating for me and the boys.
“Psychologically, Herentals were better, they were much stronger. If you recall, I think we spent about 30 minutes, in our own half, defending.
“They were throwing all sorts of things at us. But, fortunately, we were very tight at the back but, on transition, we were not efficient, especially on the wings.
“We didn’t get the much-needed crosses. Herentals had so many players in the middle and we tried to force ourselves through the middle but it was difficult.” He said.
Dynamos managed to get one shot on target from Winger Jarrison Selemani and that came within 20 minutes, into the game.
Furthermore, the performance of both teams showed signs of poor match fitness as both teams struggled the entire 90 minutes, with too many stray passes and a number of errors.
Although action was limited, at both ends of the field, the Students asked more questions than their established opponents who spend most of their time defending.
Meanwhile, the Chibuku Super Cup returned on Saturday, in a new format that saw teams being grouped in four pools for the first round matches.
Group One started with a 2-2 draw between CAPS United and Yadah Stars on Saturday.
