Phiri relishing African challenge 22/06/04
Ajax Cape Town skipper Alfred Phiri revealed he is looking forward to play in the African Club Champions League next season.

The Urban Warriors secured qualification to the lucrative competition after finishing second in the Castle Premiership.

"I am looking forward to play in the Club Championship and I have not stopped training even when I am suppose to be resting," said Phiri.

Phiri said that his contract with Ajax expired at the end of the season and is busy negotiating a new deal with the Ikamva-based side.

"I am currently negotiating with the club management and I am looking forward to putting-on the red jersey again and continued from where we left last season, we missed winning the Castle Premiership League title and I want to be there next season when Ajax CT wins the title from Kaizer Chiefs," he added.

The Johannesburg-born midfielder conceded that he fell in love with the Mother City and he is looking forward to a lengthy stay in Cape Town.

"I had never stayed in Cape Town before last season and when I joined Ajax, everyone in Cape Town made me feel at home.

"If I had my way, I would finish my football career in the Mother City playing for the Urban Warriors," he said.

He added that he will cherish his first season with Ajax, in which he was appointed captain by coach Gordon Igesund.

"The respect that the players have for each other, is one thing that  helped me to carry the task I was given by the coach to captain the team.

"The responsibility was great but it was easy because of my fellow teammates and the management who believe in me and I believed in them, it was a team effort that I was able to captain one of the best teams in the country.

"It is not every day that a player gets a chance to lead a team which have a great sporting tradition like Ajax CT and I will treasure that for the rest of my life," said Phiri.
