Mohomi, who scored in a friendly match against Botswana Premier League champions Township Rollers over the weekend, believes they have what it takes to rule African football again.

“Obviously so. That’s the reason I came here in the first place, [to win] more trophies,” Mohomi said.

“Right now we have a chance to reclaim our title, so why not? We have to go all the way and get a second star if possible. That’s what we are gunning for and that’s what’s important. So we have to do that.

“With the way the guys have been playing, I am happy and very much confident that we are going to go all the way.”
