The Amakhosi went down 2-1 to rivals Orlando Pirates in the semi-finals on Saturday afternoon at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Adding to the pain of losing in a Cup game, Solinas’ charges lost their second game in a row against Bucs in a space of four weeks by the same scoreline.

“It’s very painful to lose the derby. Very disappointed, very painful. We tried, we were fighting. We had the chance also in the last minute two chances, this is football,” the Italian told SuperSport TV.

“Maybe if we had scored two [goals] then it’s a different history. The guys tried to fight until the last second but the reality is that we lost the derby, this is very painful.”

Solinas was told that Chiefs have lost three times in a row to Bucs in a calendar year following the latest defeat.

“I don’t know about the calendar [year] but we lost two derbies [in a row], this I repeat is very painful. I feel the pain. I apologise to our supporters. We tried our best, we tried everything.

“I don’t know about the calendar [year] but we lost two derbies [in a row], this I repeat is very painful. I feel the pain. I apologise to our supporters. We tried our best, we tried everything.

“Football is about the details, the details today were with Pirates. Maybe we score two goals [in the end] and the game is another history. The details is about scoring and not scoring. We score, maybe we equalise and go to extra time and maybe we win on penalties. This is football.”
