'Yeye' joined Kaizer Chiefs from Jomo Cosmos in 2008, and received his first national call-up a few days after winning the MTN8 with his then-new club.

Letsholonyane has since become a fixture for both club and country, although he missed a large chunk of the 2011/12 season after picking up a knee injury on Bafana Bafana duty, and consequently featured in just 13 matches for Amakhosi.

His main talent is pulling the strings in midfield, but Yeye also enjoys going forward and bagging the odd goal. He has hit double figures for Chiefs, and netted twice for Bafana.
