SuperSport United coach Kaitano Tembo has described experienced midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane as “a rare breed”.
At age 36, Letsholonyane is bossing midfield battles and is showing that he is more than capable of keeping up with the younger players in the PSL.
Tembo says he has been impressed with how Letsholonyane still wants to succeed, despite achieving so much in his career.
Blessed with an unbelievable eye for a defence-splitting pass, Letsholonyane still has loads to offer before he eventually calls it a day.
“With 'Yeye' he’s a rare breed, you know. It’s very difficult to find players like him at his age, still having the hunger and desire to succeed. I think that’s key. When the hunger and desire is no longer there, it becomes a different thing,” Tembo said.
“He’s a very important player for us, although he knows sometimes he won’t play all the games, but when he is called upon to play he is always ready to give his all.”
Tembo continued: “He works very hard at training and he had a good attitude towards matches. It does not necessarily mean he won’t have an off day. He will have an off day like anyone else in terms of performance, but we understand that. What’s key is what he brings to the team.”
