Hunt names 18-man squad for Wydad clash


Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that they will jet off to Burkina Faso on Friday morning to face Moroccan outfit Wydad Casablanca in an away group game of the Caf Champions League.

The match was initially scheduled for the 13th of February 2021 in Morocco, but the game was postponed after the Soweto giants were denied visas to enter the North African country, due to Covid-19.

However, the clash will now be played on a neutral venue at the 4 August Stadium in the Burkinabe capital.

Amakhosi will lock horns with Wydad on Sunday, 28 February 2021 with the kick-off set for 16:00 local time (18:00 SA time).

The Glamour Boys were held to a goalless draw by the Guinean side Horoya AC on Tuesday in their first Caf Champions League group stage encounter.

Meanwhile, Coach Gavin Hunt announced his 18-man squad to face the two-time African Champions in Burkina Faso.

Full squad:


Daniel Akpeyi, Itumeleng Khune


Daniel Cardoso, Reeve Frosler, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Siyabonga Ngezana, Philani Zulu, Anthony Agay


Njabulo Blom, Darrel Matsheke, Willard Katsande, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, Lebogang Manyama, Kearyn Baccus
