Kekana delighted with Sundowns start

Premiership

Defender Grant Kekana has shared his thoughts on Mamelodi Sundowns' impressive defensive displays since his move to Chloorkop.

Kekana joined Sundowns ahead of the season after a six-year spell at Tshwane rivals SuperSport United.

The 28-year-old defender also scored his first goal for the Brazilians in a 2-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

"As defenders, we never really get that many opportunities to get inside the box and to score, so we have to make the most of those chances," Kekana said.

"My pairing with Rushine De Reuck is no different from my pairing with Mosa or Ricardo Nascimento," Kekana said.

"I think everything comes down to training. There are different combinations that are being tried during training which makes it easy for us to gel during the games".

"So we get used to each other during training, and we also found a good understanding in pre-season, so that makes it possible."
