Kaizer Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has invited pressure on his team to qualify for the CAF Champions League and says it should be a regular occurrence.

Chiefs finally got over their three-match losing streak after beating Royal AM 2-0 over the weekend courtesy of goals by Sifiso Hlanti and Ashley Du Preez and the focus has now turned to the club fighting to qualify for the CAF Champions League.

Table-toppers Mamelodi Sundowns are out of sight with a cushion of 21 points and teams in the top eight will all be chasing the consolation prize of a runners-up spot, which guarantees entry into the CAF Champions League.

The win over Thwihli Thwahla took Chiefs up fifth on the table, four points behind second-placed Richards Bay and Zwane says they want to put themselves under pressure to return to Africa’s premier club competition after reaching the final in 2021.

“To be quite honest, we’ll always want to put ourselves under pressure. We’ll always want to compete at the highest level. We’ll always want to be among the best,” Arthur Zwane told the media in a press conference.

“And yes, in terms of results we’ve been fluctuating, you know, and it’s understandable because of the injuries like I said but we’ll try to push hard, to push all the way.

“We’ll treat every game as they come, one game at a time but every game that we play we play to win. So if we get that opportunity of going to the CAF Champions League that’s actually where we want to go, test ourselves and play CAF Champions League every season actually,” he added.

Chiefs will resume their league schedule when they travel to TS Galaxy on Sunday afternoon.
