Royal AM manager Shauwn Mkhize is targeting a solid run in the CAF Confederation Cup after exceeding expectations last season by placing third in the DStv Premiership. She believes the players will continue to surprise her.
MaMkhize said she is looking forward to competing in a continental championship.
“The past season had been exciting, amazing… seeing our players finish in the top three and that was not what I expected,” Mkhize told reporters
“I’m looking forward to going to Africa. It is a new challenge. It was a challenge for me to get into the PSL. Now I have another challenge going to Africa and I’m looking forward to it. It has been an amazing season.”
Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic has already been linked with a move to Royal AM.
“We must have two clubs because what we noticed is that towards the end of the season, we only had one defender due to injuries. So we learned from that and we said we must increase the squad so that they are not drained,” she said.
“So wait for my [media] conference on the 28th [of June] where we will announce new players and the new coach.”
