Kaizer Chiefs hosts Simba FC in their first league quarterfinal of the CAF Champions League. Attacker Dumsani Zuma insists that they have to get a positive result at home.
“We can get a positive result,” says an optimistic Zuma.
“We know it’s not going to be an easy game, but we have to take advantage of the fact that we are at home because it’s difficult playing away. We need to win with a big margin and that will make things a little easier for the second leg.”
Kaizer Chiefs played in their first ever group stages of the CAF Champions League this season. They have been able to qualify from the group at their first attempt.
“We are very happy we made it to the Quarterfinals,” he explains.
“It’s the first time Kaizer Chiefs have reached the knockout stages of the CAF Champions League. As players we very grateful for this opportunity and we are ready for the challenge.
“We are not here to make up numbers, we are here to go further in the competition. The last game against Horoya was difficult but the character we displayed showed that if we want something, we can achieve it.
“We played against Swallows and know very well teams domestically and those on the continent are different,” he concludes.
“We tried our best against Swallows, but we drew. We really wanted a win, but it wasn’t to be.
“Our focus is now on Saturday’s game and our preparations are going well. We still have the confidence and lessons from the Horoya game.
“I trust the guys and through hard-work, our spirit and confidence, we will go all out to make our fans happy.”
