'AmaZulu not at CAFCL to add numbers'

CAF Champions League

AmaZulu captain Makhehleni Makhaula has sent a stern warning to the club's CAF Champions League rivals following Tuesday's group stage draw.

Taking part in their first-ever Champions League campaign, AmaZulu were drawn against Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca, Guinea's Horoya AC and two-time champions ES Setif in Group B of the competition.

Despite the immense challenge awaiting Usuthu on the continent, club captain Makhehleni Makhaula insists that he and his teammates will not be there to make up the numbers against their more fancied opponents.

"I have seen our group it’s a really tough group, but I think our technical team will prepare us well, he told the club's media team on Wednesday.

"We are playing against two teams that are from North Africa. It’s going to be a good experience for us, and it’s going to be good for South African football and for the people of KZN, our supporters and all the people of KZN.

"It’s really a difficult group. But we are going there to compete, we are not going there to add numbers."
