Zwane Makes Bold CAFCL & Premiership Claim

Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Arthur Zwane has made a bold claim about his side’s ambitions in the CAF Champions League and the DStv Premiership.

Amakhosi finished the 2020/21 domestic campaign in eighth place after overtaking TS Galaxy on the final day of the campaign.

Zwane, who collected two wins from his two games in charge after Gavin Hunt was sacked, has lofty ambitions, revealing he wants to win the CAF Champions League and believes the club will add more silverware next season.

“We know that we had a very difficult season, a disappointing season according to our standards as a team,” he told SA media.

“But there’s also something that is very good in terms of the CAF Champions League. Through thick and thin the fans have been there for us and we appreciate that as a team.

“Hopefully next season things will change for the better and hopefully we can put a smile on our supporters’ faces by maybe taking the team to the final of the Champions League and win it for the country because anything is possible from now on.

“I just feel sorry for the people who have been there for us for many, many years. I fought as a player, they were there when Chiefs were down and never gave up on us. And they are still here as supporters. We always try our best to put a smile on their faces.

“We want to win cups, we want to win the league, we want to dominate. Things are getting better slowly, very soon things will be back to normal for us.”

It remains to be seen whether Zwane will still be in charge when Chiefs face Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League semi-final on 19 and 26 June, with Stuart Baxter expected to take over sooner rather than later.
