Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande says that he is ready for club duty after returning from Zimbabwe’s successful 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Zimbabwe collected a point in Swaziland, before beating Sihlangu Semnikati (King's Shield) 4-0 at home.

As a result of this, The Warriors are now three points clear of their nearest rivals in Group L.

“I feel refreshed after the FIFA-break, I am ready again for club duty," the midfielder said on Kaizer Chiefs website.

“I still get goose bumps when I get a national call-up, I always get sentimental when representing my country. I am living a childhood dream. From a young age people always told me I had potential, but I thought that people just wanted to flatter me.”

Katsande returned to reunite with his Amakhosi teammates on Wednesday morning and is raring to go.

“The results with Zimbabwe refreshed my motivation, especially as we had a slump in form at club level, we are going to resume our league programme in a week’s time. I can’t wait.”

Chiefs’ next fixture is on the road against Mpumalanga Black Aces at Nelspruit’s Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday, April 12.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
