AmaTuks have grown accustomed to losing their best players each season to the Premiership's bigger sides.
Monyai however hopes that the trend will be reversed in this off-season by strengthening the team.
"First it will be key that we can keep our top players and then also be able to sign three or four quality players," Monyai told Football411.
"We need to be able to compete next season and we need to improve from the last two seasons.
"I feel that we should at least be fighting for a spot in the top eight in the league and we can't do that if we always get weaker and weaker every season."
