The Amakhosi star has previously lifted the Elite Continental Club Club Trophy with Mamlodi Sandowns, and wants to recreate those memories.
Kaiser Chiefs forward Khama Blythe has called his Kiev Champions League campaign a “movie” that he had previously seen announcing his desire to recreate the memory of being African champions.
When Blythe defeated Zamalek in the final, he was instrumental in helping Mamlodi Sundowns win the 2016 Champions League title.
Zimbabwe will now face another Egyptian giant, Al-Ahly, in the final on July 17 at the St Mohamed V Stadium when they face off against the Chief of Defense Champions.
“We are 90 minutes away from the biggest trophy any club in Africa wants to win. We are still down to earth, we are still maintaining our professionalism and through coaches we We want to do our best, “Blythe told the chiefs’ media.
During training we are working on one or two things that can make a difference during the game. It looks good.
“We didn’t see it coming, but where we are right now, I’m part of it and I’m in the finals. I give credit to God. Everything happens for a reason.
“I’m in the right place at the right time and I’m surrounded by it, the right people, the right management and I’m in the right club.
“I have been on this journey before and I know how difficult it is. I know how big the feeling can be in the end, so this is a movie that has been made before.
“I’m glad I’m there right now and I’m looking forward to going everywhere with the team and having great memories again with this great club.”
Due to injury, Blythe has not made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League for the Chiefs but has returned to the final.
He helped send Horia to the quarter-finals after denying Horia victory in their last group game at the end of Conakry 2-2.
“It wasn’t easy. If you go back, we remember all the games we played [you will see] There was nothing free. We worked for it, ”he said.
“We want to make sure that we stick to the plan that the coach is showing us during the training and we are sure that the plan will give us a good result. This is a good side that we are facing in the final. ۔
“We can only give it up if we don’t apply some things that make a difference in the game.”
Interestingly, Blythe will compete with Al-Ahly, a club reportedly interested in his services.
Al-Ahly’s coach, Patsu Moosmane, is said to be keen to take advantage of the fact that Billy will be a free agent by the end of July.
