Mosimane eyes Caf Champions League with Sundowns

Mosimane has expressed his desire to challenge for the Caf Champions League while at the same time defending next season's PSL title will remain his goal
Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has said that next year's Caf Champions League as well as defending the Absa Premiership title will the two main objectives for his team next season.

The Brazilians dethroned Kaizer Chiefs with one game left to the season on Tuesday night, to end their six-year trophy drought and Mosimane is already thinking ahead.

Speaking on Sports at 10 on Wednesday night, the former Bafana Bafana mentor confirmed that the two trophies will be top of his priority list although he didn't want to rule out the possibility of winning other trophies on offer.

Sundowns last campaigned in the Caf Champions League back in 2008, where they were knocked out in the second round by Al-Hilal Club of Sudan. Their best run in the Champions League came in 2001 when they lost to Al Ahly in the final.

It has always been the club's President Patrice Motsepe's dream to see Sundowns among the best in Africa over the past 10 years, and Mosimane is ready to live the dream and make it his own.

The 49-year-old Mosimane has been to various African countries in his coaching career while with the national team, and Sundowns have had most of their training camps outside the borders since Mosimane took charge of the team last year.
