Cape Town - Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane believes his side is strong enough to win the league title in their debut season in the Absa Premiership.

Following their successful campaign in the National First Division and their imposing run in the Nedbank Cup, Thobejane insists Bakgaga will challenge for every Cup competition on offer next season and stay in the top flight of South African football for many years to come.

"Baroka next season will win the League and the Cups that are there, and after that we will stay in the PSL, we are not going anywhere," he told KickOff.

"In maybe 100 years from now Baroka will still be in the PSL. Such is the confidence that is in me - this football I do understand.

"I believe in myself and I believe in the players. I don’t believe in [big] names. Even if all these players move on, we will have another set of players and we will make it [with them].

"I reiterate, I don’t believe in names, I believe in what I’m working with so that is why I’m saying we will stay there in the PSL.’’
