Kekana – I Still Want To Play

Former Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana says he still wants to continue playing football.

Masandawana have confirmed the departure of the veteran midfielder on Thursday after both parties reached an amicable agreement to part ways.

Kekana confirmed that he is a free agent now and would like to find another club before hanging up his boots.

“At the moment what I know is I have my clearance from Mamelodi Sundowns, so Hlompho Kekana is just free,” Kekana told Thomas Mlambo on the Ultimate Sports Show.

“I am a free agent, so yeah, sure if somebody can call me and say Hlompho would you come and play football, like I said today is just that moment that I have to let it sink in and really, really understand that from today l will be called a former Mamelodi Sundowns player.

“So yeah, it’s still really, really fresh in my mind. I’m trying to find ways to explain to my mind.”

The 36-year-old, though, insisted that he still has a lot to give as he saw many old players still producing in his age, giving the example of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“My role model was Shoes Moshoeu and I saw Shoes playing at the age of 32. And that was my dream to make sure that I do that. I saw Zlatan who’s playing, how old is Zlantan, 40?

“Cristiano Ronaldo whom everybody celebrates with my age, so if he can do that, in that level. What can stop Hlompho from doing that?

“So it’s just a mindset for me, I believe. My mindset has always been this player who wants to break every boundary possible. And I did that in my football career to this far, and I still believe I can.”
