SuperSport United defender Tefu Mashamaite has revealed his ambition when it comes to the CAF Confederation Cup competition.
The former Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits defender says lifting the continental trophy will be a huge achievement and says he's looking forward to the final.
Under the guidance of coach Eric Tinkler, the Tshwane giants are set to face Congo's TP Mazembe on Sunday in the first leg of the final.
With Morgan Gould suspended for the opening leg, 'Masha' will lead the club from the back together with Clayton Daniels.
“As an individual I think it will be the highest achievement. I have never been to the level where we are at with SuperSport, a continental final,” said Mashamaite to the media.
“It’s a big one. I have been with Bafana Bafana before, but I have never been to this stage, so it’s something to look forward to, history in the making.
“It’s been a great journey, starting in Madagascar right up to here. So we need to take from the confidence we have built.
“Experience is a factor. Experience is something you can add onto your game, but first you have to be part of the team.
“You have to be positive and be present on the day. We are looking forward to it. It’s another final, so we have to be positive.”
