Shauwn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize is excited about the challenge that lies ahead for Royal AM playing on the African continent.
The ambitious KwaZulu-Natal DStv Premiership club surpassed expectations last season under the now departed coach John Maduka.
Thwihli Thwahla finished the 2021/22 season in third place in the standings to secure their spot in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Despite the exit of Maduka, a number of new players and a new coach will be unveiled next week.
MaMkhize said: “The past season had been exciting, amazing… seeing our players finish in the top three and that was not what I expected.
“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.”
MaMkhize added: “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.
“So wait for my [media] conference on the 28th [of June] where we will announce new players and the new coach.”
