Kekana – How I Feel About Sundowns Exit

Former Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana says he knew the day of parting ways with the club would eventually come.

Kekana left the club on Thursday after an amicable agreement to part ways between the two parties after 10 years of service.

The 36-year-old, though, believes that every player will reach a certain point where they will have to leave clubs as it is part of football – despite his iconic status achieved.

“Yes, it has to come to this day, to be honest,” Kekana told Thomas Mlambo on Ultimate Sports Show.

“Either when you reach a certain level in football or a certain level in your in life, how successful you can be or one can be, you are bound to get such moment where people have to give you their way and shake hands and say you have done enough.

“And I believe over my years my experience told me that this day will come, and I had prepared for this day for the past two, three years, knowing that the day will come where I have to shake everybody’s hands and leave the club.

“But I always told everybody, my teammates will tell you that in my leadership as a team, as a player, I used to remind them about the opportunities that we get as football players, and remind them that they do everything that they can to make sure that you look back, and you just be proud of the work that you have pushed

“I must say, I am proud to say that I did everything that I could as a player of Mamelodi Sundowns. I can honestly look at everybody in the eyes and say I did my best and my best can only and [do] now.”

Kekana is amongst the most decorated footballers in South African history and won six league titles, the CAF Champions League, CAF Super Cup, Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout over his decade of service.
