We Were Forced To Play Ugly Football - Tinkler

Maritzburg United head coach Eric Tinkler slammed the poor surface of the pitch at the King Zwelithini Stadium after his Maritzburg United team shared the spoils with AmaZulu in a 0-0 stalemate at the weekend.

 

“To be brutally honest, everybody that was watching this on TV would have changed the channel. I don’t think the pitch helped either team. Both teams were forced to play ugly football. It wasn’t a great game of football,” Tinkler said.

 

"Obviously, I would love to watch that again on TV. Today, was all about fighting for the second ball. Defensively we were well-structured and organised. It is hard for me to be very critical of my players because of the pitch.
