Putsche – ‘I Can’t Remember A Bad Game Of His’

Former Cape Town City midfielder Roland Putsche says that of all the players he played against in his four years in South Africa, he rates Mamelodi Sundowns skipper Hlompho Kekana the highest.

The Austrian footballer, who is currently a free agent, is back at home in Europe and was speaking to Rob Delport in Edition 12 of iDiski Times.

Putsche says that while there were a lot of players who impressed him, Kekana was the one player he never saw have a bad game.

“I’m not a huge fan of one hit wonders,” Putsche told iDiski Times.

“And so if I look back now, there was one player for me who has been just like consistent and they were throughout my entire stay in South Africa, and it was definitely Hlompho Kekana from Mamelodi Sundowns.”

“Captain of the team, you know, I can’t remember a bad game of his, and that is an impressive thing. Like, you’re always able to score a goal and have a top performance, but to find a player where you actually can’t remember like a really bad game. That is for me a massive achievement.”

“So I would say an impressive opponent, and also a guy I really liked to play against. I think he’s even a little bit of a similar player type to me. And we had some great games and it was just fun to play against him, and a lot of other guys I could mention to be honest.”

Would Putsche consider a return to the PSL? You can read the full interview in Edition 12 of iDiski Times!
