Baroka dreaming about CAF football

Premiership

Baroka defender Vusi Sibiya is confident the team will be ready to play in Africa if they become Nedbank Cup champions this season.

The Limpopo side are in the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup and looking to repeat what they did in 2018 when they won the Telkom Knockout.

If they win the last remaining cup on offer – which still contains Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits and Bloemfontein Celtic – they will qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup.

"Well, it’s everyone’s dream to lift a trophy so it’s so important to win this tournament because it will motivate players to do better next season," Sibiya tells KickOff.com.

"I cannot say we’re ready, but should we win it. We will definitely have enough time to prepare for it."

Sibiya, who was the club captain until an injury kept him out of the majority of the season, says the PSL break came as a blessing in disguise as it has given him more time to recover.

"My season personally was very short, I only played the first nine games then got injured, and until now I’m still out," he says.

"I don’t know if I should say it’s a blessing in disguise for me or what, because it has given me a chance to recover from my injury.

"Maybe now I will be able to play the remaining games and help the team to save its status as well as win the Nedbank Cup."
