However, Matsatsantsa CEO Stan Matthews was recently quoted in local media as saying the player's agent offered Kekana to his club on a free transfer before he committed to Sundowns.

'Keke' says his heart has always been with Sundowns and not any other team in the PSL.

"Sundowns was the only team interested in my services," Kekana tells KickOff.com.

"Sundowns has done so much for me and there was no thought of playing for another team. I have achieved a lot with Sundowns and there is no other team that serves the meaning of success to me except Sundowns.

"I have enjoyed success with this team. I am surrounded by good people in the team. The technical team, my teammates, and even the kit managers. My connection with Sundowns is even deeper.

"I have enjoyed my stay at the club. Every day I am always looking forward to training. My connection with the club is deeper and more than football."

However, Kekana refuses to discuss whether he will retire at Sundowns when he reaches the age of 39 years old.
