Billiat: Chiefs gunning for CAFCL title

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat believes they can go all the way in the CAF Champions League after their historic group stage feat.

Chiefs have qualified for the Champions League group stage for the first time in the club's history after beating Angolan outfit Primeiro de Agosto 1-0 on Tuesday.

Amakhosi now join African giants in the likes of Al Ahly, Wydad Casablanca, TP Mazembe, Esperance de Tunis and local rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in the round-robin phase of the competition.

Billiat, who was part of the historic Sundowns squad that won their maiden continental title under Pitso Mosimane in 2016, has emphasised the desire to go on and achieve the same feat with the Soweto giants.

"I personally believe everyone wants to go all the way. We really need to be the generation to actually do what the best generations of this club have done," Billiat told Chiefs' media team.

"This club has a very good history, and we don't want to be the ones that are not pulling our weight [by not achieving anything].

"We want to do what they have done and make our chairman proud, [because] it has been long [since he has been made proud]."
