Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that they have amicably parted ways with Hlompho Kekana. His contract was to expire at the end of the current (2021/22) season.

The much decorated Midfielder spent over 10 years with Mamelodi Sundowns, playing over 350 matches.

Kekana leaves Sundowns after winning six Premiership League titles, a CAF Champions League and Super League.

Mamelodi Sundowns chairperson, Tlhopie Motsepe said he hopes Kekana’s journey inspire others

“In almost all of his interviews, Hlompho always referred to himself as ‘a boy from the village’. He is proud of where he has come from and his journey as a boy from Zebediela to a man leading Mamelodi Sundowns to the FIFA Club World Cup in Osaka Japan, is a story that I pray all future leaders in South Africa draw inspiration from”. Motsepe said.

Sundowns have left the door open for Kekana to return in a different capacity when he decides to retire from active football.
