Arthur Zwane has responded to suggestions that his future as head coach is in jeopardy as Kaizer Chiefs ended an underwhelming season with a fourth consecutive defeat.
Amakhosi suffered a 1-0 defeat to Cape Town City thanks to a Mduduzi Mdantsane goal on Saturday at FNB Stadium.
The defeat marked the end of an underwhelming campaign that saw Chiefs fail to lift silverware and manage a fifth-placed finish in the league in Zwane's first season at the helm.

The poor run of form has reportedly raised concerns over Zwane's capability to lead the Glamour Boys.
"I'm a believer, I'm a hard worker. If there's one thing that football taught me is never the game if you don't have a big heart," Zwane told journalists when asked if he is confident of keeping his role.
"As I said earlier on, it was more like a learning season for me, for the fact that me being the one making decisions, obviously with the help of other technical team members, but I've always been the supporting member of the team, supporting other coaches that have been here before.
"So this time around, I had to do things the way I think would help the team.
"As much as it was learning season, I think it was a very productive one in terms of learning things that I know [for example] that we should have done this or should have done that because that's the only way [to learn].

"When you do introspection, you always know, this is what we should have done here, this is what we should do going forward and in terms of players that should come in.
"Now you learn that okay maybe this one has got talent but he doesn't have the character so now we will look for the character, more than the talent."
Amakhosi have already began efforts to beef up their squad for next season with the signing of City's Mdantsane, SuperSport United's Thatayaone Ditlhokwe and TS Galaxy's Given Msimango already completed.
