Kaizer Chiefs defender Mario Booysen is confident his side can qualify for the Caf Confederation Cup group stages under the guidance of Ernst Middendorp.
The Glamour Boys travelled to Madagascar on Friday morning as they continue their preparations for their upcoming game against Elgeco Plus at the Stade Municipal de Mahamasina in Antananarivo on Saturday.
Amakhosi head into the return leg fixture after claiming a comfortable 3-0 victory over the same opponents in the first leg.
‘We take a 3-0 advantage into the game,’ Booysen told the media
‘It’s crucial to get an away goal. However, as always, we will go into the match to win.’
The 30-year-old defender spoke highly about newly-appointed coach Ernst Middendorp, who he previously worked under at Maritzburg United.
‘He knows what he wants. He’s a very ambitious coach and knows how to keep a group together. We, as players, understand what the coach wants, and he will help us grow as a team,’ he added.
‘Middendorp has brought stability, which we can already see from the recent two wins since taking over. We play very offensive football, looking to score goals and that has helped to get results.’
Kaizer Chiefs against Elgeco Plus kicks off at 1:30pm.
