Mamelodi Sundowns star Hlompho Kekana has explained his decision to opt against retirement despite already being 34-years-old.
Kekana recently put pen to paper on a new long term deal and the Sundowns captain has explained his somewhat shocking decision to continue fixed to a contract until the age of 38.
“To be honest if you’ve tasted that amount of success that we’ve enjoyed at Sundowns, you want more. So, there’s that drive from us to look for more,” Kekana told IOL.
“It is a plan to always try and win every match and the trophies which we compete for. We always want to improve as a team and do the undo-able. We want to continue to win trophies. I remember when we first won the Champions League, we never had the belief that we will win it.
"So I still believe that as a team we have what it takes to win trophies. I renewed my contract because I know we are a team of winners. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile to win trophies."
