TS Galaxy spends the same as Mamelodi Sundowns in CAF participation costs


The shock Nedbank Cup winners have continued to surprise everybody since lifting their first major trophy and now find themselves in the same CAF Confederation Cup group as two-time Champions League winners Enyimba of Nigeria.

Sukazi has big ambitions for the team and views his club's achievements as an inspiration for South African football, especially the underprivileged, as he looks to take his team to the big leagues.

"CAF Confederation Cup is very hard but TS Galaxy is still progressing," Sukazi said.

"Our intention is to keep on progressing and serve as inspiration to our people, for them to believe regardless of your background everything is possible, wherever you come from. Your economic struggle mustn't define your destiny in life, you can achieve anything good.

"This club will continue being a pride of this country, we are not done in CAF, we are going to show them who we are, and we will come back with results."

Galaxy have already made history by becoming the first ever NFD team to win the national cup, and they are now targeting further CAF progression and GladAfrica Championship promotion.

Sukazi says with every success comes rewards and they believe they can do more of the impossible this season.

"What I can say, we as TS Galaxy are in three competitions, and all of them we are planning to do well. We don't have the luxury to choose which one we must prioritise over the other, so the GladAfrica Championship, Nedbank Cup we are defending champions and indeed CAF Confederation Cup. With every success in every competition comes a reward.

"We are an NFD club, we are campaigning in this CAF through our own will. We don't have big sponsorships like our counterparts who play in the Absa Premiership with the biggest grants and yet the costs are the same. We spend the same as Mamelodi Sundowns, and because of that we want to achieve.

"We don't have the luxury of choosing, we want to succeed in all these three competitions, we want to be in the Absa Premiership either through the championship or promotion playoffs. We've proven ourselves to be a great asset to football here in South Africa."
