Feutmba: Why Kekana deserves it


Mamelodi Sundowns legend Roger Feutmba has explained why he feels Hlompho Kekana should be named PSL Footballer of the Season.

The 33-year-old Kekana has been nominated for the big award for the fourth time in his career and he’ll be hoping that this time he finally gets his hands on the prize that has eluded him for these past few years.

The former Black Leopards and SuperSport United midfielder is nominated alongside teammate Themba Zwane and Orlando Pirates attacker Thembinkosi Lorch. All three players are also nominated for the players’ player and midfielder of the season awards.

“If I were to pick one I would go for Hlompho Kekana. Why? Because for many years he has kept his consistency. For many years he has done well for South African football and I think he deserves it,” Kekana said.

“Football is not about two good games. It’s about consistency and he has been consistent. He has managed to do very well for Sundowns and he is one of the most important players in the team. Apart from him, I think Themba Zwane has done very well for Sundowns. But from what I’ve just mentioned, I’d go for Hlompho.”

The winner for the big prize will be announced at the PSL awards in Durban on Sunday night, a day after the Nedbank Cup between Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
