Kaizer Chiefs marketing director says their target is to do well in the CAF Champions League as they are set to face off against Simba SC.
The Amakhosi boss was reacting to the quarter-final draw that was conducted last week and that the club will certainly embark on a historical journey.
Chiefs drew 2-2 against Bloemfontein Celtic last weekend in their DStv Premiership and the consistency has been questioned but they have had a good run in the continent.
For the first time, the Soweto giants have made it to the group and knockout stages of the continental showpiece. Motaung said:
"This is certainly a very historic moment for the club.
"We just celebrated our 50th anniversary as some of you will know - we are very happy with the draw.
"All of us, all of the clubs who are here are formidable clubs who have the ability to move forward into the final.
"For us as a club, we're very ambitious and from the word go it's been our vision to get into the final, to win the title and make history. This is an exciting time for us and we look forward to the challenge ahead."
Amakhosi will welcome the Tanzanian giants for the first leg tie of the quarter-final on 15 May at FNB Stadium.
As coach Gavin Hunt admitted the draw result is a tough one for his men, Motaung has made it clear that the club is excited for its historic journey thus far and stated winning the competition is a challenge they relish.
Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns are set to face Al Ahly, a club that is coached by former coach Pitso Mosimane in the next stage in their quest to bag their second continental trophy.
At the same time, Orlando Pirates will be up against Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Briefly News reported that goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has reached a milestone for the Soweto giants and he is still counting. Khune is one of the club's longest-serving players and has recently made it in the 350 club when you look at his appearances for the Glamour Boys.
As he was in goal when they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of relegation-threatened Chippa United on Wednesday, ‘Itu’ has taken to Twitter to brag about his latest record.
