Kekana holds Shikabala above Iniesta

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana has collected many jerseys from teammates and opponents but the 'Shikabala' jersey holds a special place in his heart.

Kekana remains the only captain in the 50-year history of Sundowns to lift the CAF Champions League trophy and was recently rewarded with a new four-year contract for his outstanding and consistent performances in The Brazilians jersey.

While defender Wayne Arendse managed to secure Lionel Messi's jersey during an international friendly match against Barcelona a few years ago, Kekana is still holding onto Andres Iniesta's number eight.

"I have so many jerseys that I have exchanged with my teammates and other players, it's difficult to choose the best," Kekana tells KickOff.com.

"But I think the Shikabala jersey holds special memories in my life during the CAF Champions League final in Alexandra.

"I also have Iniesta's jersey I got when we played that international friendly game a few years ago. He remains one of the best players to witness playing with the current generation.

"I also have Surprise Moriri's jersey [framed] hanging there in my house. But as I said, I love all the jerseys I have received from my teammates and opposition players. I value them so much in my heart."

'Keke' wears number eight at Chloorkop.
