Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane has declared that AmaKhosi are pressing ahead with finishing second and qualifying for the CAF Champions League – a competition that they desire.
Chiefs were runners-up in their most recent Champions League campaign two years ago but have only been in the continent’s premier club competition only five times since South African became eligible to play international club competitions in 1993 after isolation.

With Sundowns running away with their sixth title in a row, competition will now be for second spot which Chiefs have keen interest on as they sit just four points behind second placed Richards Bay with a dozen games to play.
Second place in the DStv Premiership secures Champions League football while third place has the Confederation Cup ticket.
"To be quite honest we will always want to put ourselves under pressure," responds Zwane when asked about chasing Champions League football.
"We will always want to compete at the highest level.
"We will always want to be amongst the best and yes in terms of results we have been fluctuating and it is understandable because of the injuries.
"We will try to push hard and push all the way.
"We treat every game one game at a time but every game that we play we play to win.
"If we get that opportunity to go to the Champions League that is actually where we want to go and test ourselves and actually play Champions League every season," says Zwane.
Sundowns has been the only club in South Africa that has been a constant feature in the Champions League having now played in the competition nine years in a row.
The Brazilians are into the group stages this season for the eighth consecutive year which has earned them respect on the continent.
