Motaung targets CAFCL glory

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs have set an ambitious target of winning the CAF Champions League, according to Marketing Director Jessica Motaung.

Chiefs advanced to the knockout stage of the Champions League after ousting Guinea Ligue 1 giants Horoya AC to runners-up spot, which set up a tantalising tie against Group A winners Simba Sports Club.

The Tanzania Premier League champions pipped Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly to win their group and as one of the most supported clubs in Africa - the tie looks set to be one of the most high-profile fixtures amongst the continent's elite.

While head coach Gavin Hunt admitted it's a tough draw for Amakhosi, Motaung expressed the club's excitement of their historic journey thus far and stated winning the competition is a challenge they relish.

"This is certainly a very historic moment for the club," Motaung said. "We just celebrated our 50th anniversary as some of you will know - we are very happy with the draw.

"All of us, all of the clubs who are here are formidable clubs who have the ability to move forward into the final.

"For us as a club, we're very ambitious and from the word go it's been our vision to get into the final, to win the title and make history. This is an exciting time for us and we look forward to the challenge ahead."

Chiefs will host Didier Gomes' high-flying side for the first leg tie of the quarter-final on 15 May at FNB Stadium.
