Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed the club's plans to boost their squad ahead of their CAF Champions League duties next year.

After their exit from this year's second round qualification campaign at the hands of Congolese champions AS Vita, Mosimane is looking forward to going back again, adding that the team will sign new players in a bid to make their mark on the continent.

"I wanted to play in Africa and that's why I agreed to take up the coaching job at Sundowns because they want to play and do well in Africa," he told Goal website.

"We didn't do that last year and we haven't done well again this year, we will go to Africa again next year. That's one of our plans; we want to make sure we leave a mark in Africa.

"We are going to boost our squad so that when we reach the CAF Confederation Cup this year. We then can have a strong squad for the Champions league next year."
