Kitchee boss Ken Ng Kin challenged his players to scale even greater heights after watching his side capture their fourth top-flight soccer championship in five years yesterday. Despite a 3-2 defeat by YFCMD in their last BOCG Life Hong Kong Premier League match at Sham Shui Po Sports Ground, Kitchee were still able to lift the inaugural Premier League trophy with a three-point advantage over second-placed Eastern, who lost 3-0 to South China at Mong Kok Stadium. The [AFC] Champions League would be an ideal platform to fulfil our dream, but the players must be good enough to mount a strong challenge Kitchee boss Ken Ng Kin Coupled with their success in the League Cup, Kitchee are gearing for a treble season as they will meet Eastern in the FA Cup final next Sunday. But Ng is already looking ahead to next season as they will be competing in the 2016 AFC Champions League for the second time as the new league champions. "We lost in the qualifying round this year after just one match and, of course, we want a better result next year," said Ng. "The players have enjoyed great success in the domestic season, but we always aim high and want Kitchee to become a force to be reckoned with in the region. "The Champions League would be an ideal platform to fulfil our dream, but the players must be good enough to mount a strong challenge." Two of their naturalised players - Helio Goncalves and Paulo Carreiro - will be eligible as local players for regional cup competitions next year and this would give a strong boost to the squad. Kitchee will also keep most of their foreign players next season. Marksman Juan Belencoso has been offered a new contract of two years, while defenders Fernando Recio and Daniel Cancela are still under contract. Another prolific striker Jorge Tarres is also likely to stay. Kitchee coach Jose Molina, however, will be leaving as his family have struggled to adapt to life in Hong Kong. "We are now looking for another coach from Spain and the candidate will need to have international experience to bring the team to a higher level," said Ng. Molina, a former coach of La Liga side Villarreal, said he would love to stay in Hong Kong longer but he was leaving for reasons beyond his control. "It has been a great season, winning the championship and the League Cup and reaching the FA Cup final," said Molina. Captain Lo Kwan-yee, is rumoured ready to leave Kitchee as his contract expires at the end of the season, but said he would focus on the FA Cup and the AFC Cup matches before deciding.
