Mosimane Confirms Kekana’s New Contract

Head Coach, Pitso Mosimane, has confirmed that Hlompho Kekana’s contract with Mamelodi Sundowns has been renewed.

It was reported on Soccer Laduma earlier this month, May 08, that the Brazilians were finally able to conclude talks with their 31-year-old skipper and negotiate a new contract at the Chloorkop-based club.

“Yes, Pitso Mosimane did confirm that he (Hlompho Kekana) has signed a new contract,” Sundowns’ Media Coordinator, Thulani Thuswa, confirmed to the Siya crew at the PSL headquarters at the time.

Like several Masandawana players, Kekana’s previous contract was set to expire at the end of the current 2016/17 season, however, Sundowns acted quickly to offer the player a new deal, so as to avoid losing the team’s captain on a free at the end of the current campaign.

Now, Mosimane has officially confirmed that the club will be holding onto their skipper’s services beyond the current season, as they make their way to defend their CAF Champions League title.

“People must realise that contracts are negotiated, and this is not an easy process. We recently concluded negotiations for a contract extension for our captain Hlompho Kekana and his contract has been renewed. Keeping our captain is important,” Mosimane said on Sundowns’ official website.

“He led the team to the Champions League and the Super Cup, and through the current league season. It is important to keep him and other important players as we begin the defence of the Champions League,” he added.
