NATIONAL Pension Scheme Authority (NAPSA) director general Yollard Kachinda is confident Napsa Stars will challenge for the 2018 CAF inter-club competition slot.
Seventh-placed Napsa have 37 points, eight behind leaders Zesco United.
The Pensioners have recorded three draws and fours defeats in their last seven games.
Kachinda said on Thursday when he visited the team at Prince Charles Hotel in Lusaka that the players must continue working hard to realise their objective for this season.
Napsa are lodged at the hotel for a five-day team building programme.
He said in a statement released in Lusaka yesterday by the club’s media and public relations officer, Gwen Chipasula, that the players ‘must die a little’.
The Super Division winners represent the country in the CAF Champions League and the runners-up campaign in the Confederation Cup.
“I am not here to put unnecessary pressure on anyone but just to give a word of encouragement to the team. We are following your works and, yes, if there’s something we are not happy about, the best thing to do is accept,” Kachinda, who is also Napsa patron, said.
