Cape Town - Steve Komphela revealed that one of his ambitions is to succeed where most ex-Kaizer Chiefs coaches have failed.

The CAF Champions League has been a poisoned chalice for Amakhosi over the years, which is something Komphela is motivated in changing.

The former Maritzburg United insist that he wants to make chairperson Kaizer Motaung proud by reaching at least the group stage of the Champions league.

“The chairman has an ambition to see his team doing well in Africa and I have taken that as a mandate to at least reach the group stages of Champions league in the upcoming campaign of the prestigious club competition,” Komphela said.

“The other coaches tried their best but were unsuccessful and it’s now my goal to make the chairman happy by helping the team do well in the continent.”

The newly appointed Amakhosi coach said he has confidence in the squad and believes that they can deliver in the domestic league as well as in Africa.

Chiefs last success in Africa came in 2001 where the club won the then African Cup Winners’ Cup defeating Pedro de Luanda of Angola.
