Khune's fearless target against Wydad

CAF Champions League

Itumeleng Khune has spoken boldly of their ambitions in Burkina Faso, where they will face Wydad Athletic Club in a huge CAF Champions League group clash.

Chiefs on Friday jetted out to Ouagadougou for their rescheduled Group C fixture against Wydad, which was initially set to take place in Casablanca on 13 February.

The match has been moved to a neutral venue after the Moroccan government refused entry visas for South Africans due to the widely reported Covid-19 variant strain in South Africa.

Khune, who has recently made a return to the playing squad and was again named among the travelling party, has expressed their ambition to beat the two-time Champions League winners.

"It's a very tough match for us but we're looking forward to bringing three points back home. We've been preparing very well for this match and we're going to give it our all," Khune told the club's media.

"Everyone is ready, all the guys are looking forward to the game and we're going to work together as a team. It's going to be difficult because it's not out home game.

"But we're going to fight hard for the three points and make sure that we make the Amakhosi family happy and proud."
