Downs Confirm Long-Term Contract For Key Player

Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that one of their key players has signed a long-term contract that will see him remain at the club until 2024.

Hlompho Kekana, their captain, has finally put pen to paper and looks set to quite possibly retire at Chloorkop.

In a brief statement on their Twitter page, Sundowns confirmed that they were “proud to announce skipper Hlompho Kekana has signed a new 4-year contract, which will keep him at the club until 2024.”

Kekana will turn 35 next month and the new deal will expire as he edges closer to his 40th birthday, a prime age for retirement.

His current deal was due to come to an end on June 30 and would have made him a free agent, but the club clearly wants to see their captain remain an integral part of their future plans – and maybe even beyond his playing days.
