How Long Before Our African Dream Comes True?

The only way we will become African juggernauts is if we conquer the continent in the CAF Champions League, and in our long and illustrious history, our trophy cabinet is yet to be filled with that cup.

Yes, Kaizer Chiefs have conquered South Africa countless times before, but how long are we going to wait for the club to seriously prioritise winning the CAF Champions League?

We can easily turn to European examples in this regard. Look at a club like Real Madrid for example, they are the undisputed kings of Europe, having won the UEFA Champions League on a record 10 occasions.

Year after year they put as much energy into winning the trophy as they possibly can. Whether it is buying the best players in the world or making sure they have a manager at the helm who has won the completion before.  It is Madrid's number one mandate and they pride themselves in doing well continentally.

I feel that we could, or rather should, learn from Los Blancos' example. This then calls for serious preparation from a management point of view...

Yes, we've always had some of the best players in the country at Naturena, but what is stopping us from acquiring the services of some of the best players on the continent?

We could even allocate coaches who have experience in the competition... And I feel that in terms of it being a long term project, it would be hard for any coach to turn down.  We have all the reason to dream of turning the biggest club in South Africa into the biggest in Africa.

How long do you think it will take us to conquer Africa?
