Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Willard Katsande, says that despite the success the Amakhosi have experienced in the past season, that they can still improve and need to sustain their form in the coming season.

The Kaizer Chiefs' website reports that Katsande, Chiefs' most improved player for the 2012/13 season enjoyed his post-season break, but was happy to return to the club for pre-session training.

"It (the break) was okay - very good actually - to be home after a wonderful season of winning the double.

"I am happy to be back at work. So far everything is going well and we are all looking forward to the challenges of the new season. We want to continue with the momentum from last season. Fitness is not much of a problem because before we left, we received a health and fitness programme to follow during the break.

"It is just a matter of time before one gets back to full fitness," said Katsande.

Katsande then shared that he feels the club should aspire to more glory and not rest on their laurels especially now that the rest of the league will put a target on their backs.

"Going into the new season, the achievements of the past season are now history.

"We want to do well in all competitions including the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout that eluded us last season.

"We are aware that we will be a team to beat this season. Like last season we would like to encourage the supporters to rally behind us.

"Our supporters always come in numbers at the stadia and that gives us the edge over our opponents.

"The only thing that I wish is not going to happen again at the stadium this coming season is the booing of the players.

"That is painful especially when you get booed by your own supporters. Having said that I am optimistic we will do well in the new season."
