PSL

Chiefs To Follow Bucs' Example

Kaizer Chiefs make their return to African continental competition when they take on Namibian champions, Black Africa, in a Caf Champions League preliminary round clash on February 8. The game marks Chiefs' first competitive action in Caf-sanctioned competition for some time. In 2005 the club prematurely pulled out of the Caf Confederations Cup, and were banned for three years as a result.

In 2010, Chiefs declined to participate in the same competition citing financial costs as one of the reasons for their pull-out. Nonetheless, the Glamour Boys are committed to playing in the Champions League this season.

In addition, Stuart Baxter’s men will also travel to Windhoek on February 15 for the second leg against Black Africa. The eight-time Namibian Premier League champions are something of an unknown quantity, and will be looking for their prolific hitman, Jerome Louis, to cause Chiefs some problems.

Nonetheless, Amakhosi are said to be in positive mood as they look to build on their eight point lead at the top of the PSL standings. The club's rugged central defender, Morgan Gould, believes Amakhosi can build on the success of what Orlando Pirates achieved last season by doing well in Africa.

He told Soccer-Laduma in edition 855, "We saw our countrymen perform well in Africa and we also want to do well there. Bucs paved the way for us and we can achieve good results too."
