FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza believes his current squad is good enough to compete with the continent’s best in the upcoming season of the Caf Champions League.

The 2017 Champions did not do well in the 2018 campaign as they were knocked out in the preliminary round after losing 5-1 on aggregate to Primero de Agosto of Angola in February.

The Pure Platinum Play made just one signing during the mid-season transfer window, adding Thomas Chideu who was a free agent.

According to NewsDay, Mapeza is confident the players at his disposal can still compete at the highest level.

“I have confidence in the squad that I have. I may have wanted to rope in one or two players with champions league or international football experience, but I still believe the current squad can compete,” he said.

“It is also a chance for us to gain exposure at a continental level.”

The Zvishavane based side was handpicked to represent the country in the continental club competition by virtue of being the defending champions after CAF changed its calendar.
