Cape Town - Platinum Stars chairman Cliff Ramoroa admits he is surprised by the massive progress the club has made under coach Cavin Johnson this season.
Johnson, who rejoined Dikwena after an ill-fated spell with SuperSport United, led the Rustenberg outfit to a third-placed finish in the Premiership to qualify for continental football next term.
Ramoroa claims it's way beyond the target that was initially expected of Johnson and his squad, but is now eyeing an ambitious approach of improving their achievements.
"The team has done very well," he told the club's official website. "The boys worked hard to reach the level that they are at. Position three is some that we didn't expect to be honest.
"We expected far less than that to be honest because we are building. We are building a team. We come from position 15 last year.
"Now we are moving to be in top eight. The coach has surpassed that which he wants to do.
"Position three is not something that we take to our heads. We got our own standards. We know where we are going. We are building a team.
"We were on position 16 and we were building towards getting into the top eight and now we are building to remain within the top eight and at a higher level.
"Our aim is not necessarily to win the league but to be in the top eight and continue building.
"Only after three years, that's when we will be talking about winning the league. At the moment we are building the team."
