Raja Casablanca could well be giving the Kaizer Chiefs technical staff sleepless nights as they prepare to overturn a 1-0 scoreline in the second-leg of their CAF Champions league encounter on 5 April at the Stade Mohamed in Morocco.
Should we be unsuccessful in advancing to the next phase of the competition, I’m sure many lessons will have been learnt along the way. Defender Eric Mathoho believes this, and also feels that one day we will win the CAF Champions League.
In the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, Tower reveals what is needed on Chiefs' part to clinch the trophy, and that with hard work, their dreams will materialise.
“Our time will come! We just have to play our game and not compare ourselves to other countries in terms of saying they are strong or we are weak. We should continue fighting and one day will get what we want and reach the finals of the CAF Champions League, just like Pirates did! It’s all about hard work, nothing else,” he said.
He also went on to say that Orlando Pirates' surging run to the Champions League final two seasons ago proved to be a big lesson not only for us, but for the whole of South Africa.
“We learnt that if you are determined to achieve something you have to put your heart on it, you can achieve that. It was unfortunate they didn’t win the trophy in the finals, but they worked very hard and their commitment and dedication showed just by reaching the finals, after winning some very hard matches along the way. It was a lesson, not just to Chiefs but to all South African teams, that we can also do it,” he added.
Reflecting on Towers statements, can we emulate Bucs and reach the finals this season?
