Cape Town - Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has suggested that his team needs to win a domestic title before they can think of winning in CAF competition.

The university club had another early CAF Confederation Cup exit this season after defeat to Tanzanian side Azam FC.

Hunt's men finished second to Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in the domestic league, and have therefore qualified for the Champions League next season.

"We had to do what we had to do ... we haven't won anything as a club and we can't compete with Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates," Hunt told KickOff.

"So we have to try to be better on the domestic front before we start thinking too far ahead, but the good thing is we are getting there.

"Next season it's going to be Olympics and Africa Cup of Nations, so what is going to happen? Three games every week?

"The season might have to be extended next year. If you start late it will mean you have to finish in June because of Olympics and AFCON.

"The season has to change, something has to change. We don't have private jet to fly out and fly in and we don't use chartered flight we go via domestic airways."
