Pitso: He Is Our Iniesta

Pitso Mosimane has paid a glowing tribute to Mamelodi Sundowns skipper Hlompho Kekana, one of the club’s longest serving players in recent times.

The 34-year-old last season managed to break club legend Themba Mnguni’s record of 50 matches in a single season and doesn’t look like slowing down in the current campaign, having already featured in all nine of Downs’ domestic games.

Kekana missed out on three of their four CAF Champions League early round matches because of a suspension after he picked up a red card.

“He is unbelievable. This guy minimised what he does in his social life so that his football can be a priority. It’s the principle of giving less to leisure, but more to your game. There’s a YouTube link with all his goals, it’s amazing,” Mosimane told the Siya crew.  

The Downs coach, who has won all his four league titles at the club with Kekana a key member of the squad and captain since 2016, compared him to Barcelona great Andres Iniesta in terms of his role and influence at Chloorkop.

“We need to say to the young players ‘do you know how many cups this guy has won here?’ – he is our Iniesta, Ryan Giggs and Xavi,” the coach said.
