Chiefs Boss Sets Champions League Target

Gavin Hunt has set what he believes is a realistic target for Kaizer Chiefs in the CAF Champions League group stages.

It’s the first time Amakhosi find themselves in this phase of the interclub continental tournament, so expectations vary depending on who you speak to.

Hunt did come under heavy scrutiny during his tenure as Bidvest Wits coach that the club did not take CAF competitions seriously.  

He’s always maintained that it was never the case for him personally.

“I’ve always wanted to do well in this competition, but obviously I don’t want to go back (to discuss Wits) due to the circumstances,” Hunt told reporters ahead of Chiefs’ opening group stages fixture at home against Horoya AC on Tuesday night. 

“Things are different now, but nothing has changed for me personally. Already we are in the group stages, now we need to go one further and try get into the knockout stage. But what we need to do is take one game at a time and not get too far ahead of ourselves.”

Wydad Casablanca, who were meant to play Chiefs two weeks ago – but the Morocco government denied Amakhosi entry due to Covid-19 restrictions, and Petro de Luanda are the other two clubs in Group C.

“This is not an easy group, there are some teams that have got a lot of experience in this competition. We are very much underdogs, if you want to call it that, in this competition. But let’s just take one game at a time,” said Hunt. 

Chiefs will now face Wydad on Sunday in Burkina Faso, while they travel to Angola for their clash against Petro de Luanda next month.
