Can Yeye Play For Another Season?

Reneilwe ‘Yeye’ Letsholonyane is slowly coming in to the fold at Highlands Park, however, is still a player that needs to be managed.

The 37-year-old former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United midfielder, may have penned his last professional contract in his career, although Head Coach Owen da Gama believes that, if managed correctly, Yeye could still be playing for another season.

“Yeye is 37-years-old, he is no longer a youngster and he never had a pre-season training. You can’t just push him like you push an 18-year-old,” Da Gama told the media after their 0-0 draw against Cape Town City.

“But we need to build him and get him ready and manage him well, just his presence at training makes the guys want to play more and there is no doubt that he is a player that will help us. 

“I think there is a very strong possibility (that Yeye can play until next season)… You know, players like Yeye, off the field at training he is just unbelievable. He is first at training, first, and that alone sets the tone for the rest of the younger players saying that this man has achieved so much, (but) he is first at training and contributes during the analysis, he speaks to players on the side, so on and off the field he is a helluva asset for Highlands Park. 

“We played Pirates in a friendly a week ago and he was the best player on the park, we beat them 2-0, he was the best player by far,” he added.
