Pitso: Kekana best ever Downs captain


Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has saluted Hlompho Kekana as the best captain in the club's history.

The 34-year-old was honoured with a framed jersey before the league match against Bidvest Wits at Loftus Stadium last night after reaching the milestone of 300 games played for Sundowns.

The Limpopo-born midfielder, who reached game number 300 against USM Alger at the end of December, remains the only captain to lift the CAF Champions League trophy at Chloorkop.

"Keke is a milestone. I think he is the best captain for me at Sundowns in terms of achievements," said Mosimane.

"I don't know if any other captain has won so many trophies like him [at Sundowns] and to do 300 games with a goal away in Algers is an icing on the cake."

"He has been here. He has been the captain. He is a role model. I don't remember him missing training since I have been here. I don't remember Kekana missing a training session.

"He gives everything that he has in every match, same spirit, same mentality irrespective of his age that is working against him. He is a true soldier and role model."
