Kekana Praises PSL: We Should Be Proud

Mamelodi Sundowns' Hlompho Kekana Still Thinks The PSL Is At A High Level

Mamelodi Sundowns captain, Hlompho Kekana, thinks that the Premier Soccer League is more competitive and more difficult than playing in the CAF Champions League.

With the current Absa Premiership season being characterised by low scoring games and draws so far, questions have been asked about the quality of football on show in South Africa’s top-flight, but Kekana thinks that things are going well.

Masandawana can go five points clear at the top of the table tonight if they are able to beat Maritzburg United, but at this point, no team has managed to breach the 25-point mark despite approaching the mid-season break.

Kekana, who was speaking after lifting yet another Player of the Month gong, praised those in charge of the league and compared it to playing in the CCL.

He told the media, “I think if you look at the league‚ the only challenge we have is to score goals. But the brand of football that the teams are playing is very‚ very good. Nobody is guaranteed a win, so it says a lot about our league and that there is a lot where we are doing a good job. Especially the people that are in charge of the league.

“As players, we always enjoy our games because you can see the competition is very high‚ and it’s very tough. Looking at the Champions League‚ which is very competitive‚ in comparison our league is much competitive and much difficult compared to the Champions League.”

The Bafana Bafana international went on to say, “In the Champions League everyone plays percentage football where all you have to do is play your mind to games. Unlike here where you are forced to play. That side they play mind games‚ and it’s a difficult thing to adjust to.

“I think as South Africans we should be very proud to be South Africans.”

Sundowns host Maritzburg at 19h30 this evening in Tshwane.
