JOHANNESBURG — Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens (pictured) was delighted with his side’s 4-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8 quarter-finals on Sunday.

Sundowns struck all of their goals in the opening 45 minutes. Although Neeskens admits that he was not as pleased with the second-half performance, he was happy to see his side make the most of their chances.

“I think our team started very well. They did [everything] the way we wanted them to play ... A lot of things worked and I must give them a compliment,” he said.

“Especially in the first half, they did exactly [what we wanted]. We created space, we went forward and now we had some opportunities and we also scored the goals.

“In the second half, I was not that happy. I think we were a little bit sloppy with passing. So that could have been better. But overall I’m happy and I must give a big compliment to the whole team.” — Sport24.
