Kaizer Chiefs legend Doctor Khumalo has criticised Veli Mothwa for his costly mistake in the MTN8 final.
Monnapule Saleng opened the scoring in the 24th minute, surprising Mothwa with a direct free-kick from a tight angle.
Khumalo was not impressed with Mothwa’s positioning ahead of the goal.
“Look at the position, look at the keeper, he is going two steps forward,” he explained on SABC.
“Was there any danger near post? No. Who is taking the ball, a left-footed player. Out of position…
“Let’s look at how the goal was scored, it’s a curler. If you take two steps forward, obviously he won’t be able to use the technique in terms of bending it over the bar.
“Why was he then after the goal apologising? Because he knew, he was wrong, his position was wrong.
“They are not playing Pirates, they are playing the occasion.”
