Wits won the MTN8 and the league titles last season and are in line to defend both titles at their start of the 2017/18 season.

The Clever Boys have bolstered their squad ahead of next season.

“We’re building a team that will ensure we can compete with the best and the highest level,” Scott told KickOff.

“It will definitely be tough in the new season as teams are desperate to overthrow us. But if you look at the quality and depth we have now with the signings we made, it tells you about the club and the coach’s ambitions and plans. This is fantastic and needs to be saluted and I think we’re on the right path.

“We are not intimidated by anyone. I think we should be ready to compete with the best in Africa with the good mix and quality of players we now have.”

“It will be a long tough season especially with our commitments in Africa and we’re looking forward to the challenges. Like I said, I think that we’re on the right path to challenge for more honours and success,” Scott concluded.
