Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka insists the side are planning for nothing less than a triple title swoop this season.

The Glamour Boys began the campaign by lifting the MTN8 trophy in Septemeber and are currently on course to snatch back the Premiership title they conceded to Mamelodi Sundowns last term as they sit eight points clear at the top of the standings.

Stuart Baxter's men are also contesting the CAF Champions League, although they take on Raja Casablanca on Sunday trailing 1-0 from the first leg, but Maluleka is confident they can bounce back and go all the way.

"I think as a team we are not aiming for any less (than both titles)," he told Football411.

"There are two competitions that we are currently contesting in and we would like to win both.

"There is not a single cup that we prefer better than the other because initially, the aim is to win everything.

"And one has to work extremely hard to achieve this.

"Unfortunately, this could not be the case in the other cups but we are still in with a chance to scoop a double, although we know it won't be easy."

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old also took time to reflect on his own season, and acknowledged there is still room for improvement.

"On a personal level, I think my season has been good and bad," he added.

"A lot has happened and I'm just grateful that I didn't suffer any serious long-term injuries.

"As a footballer, one can never be satisfied though because there's always room for improvement in order to be a better player than I am today.

"So it's never enough, I'm happy with how I've done but I'm willing to do more."
