How Mamelodi Sundowns’ Kekana & Onyango celebrated their record eighth league crown

Brazilians ended the season in style as they defeated Cape Town City 3-0 on Saturday

Mamelodi Sundowns skipper Hlompho Kekana says he did not know he will be celebrating the eighth league title with Uganda legend Denis Onyango as they were just aiming to better themselves.

The duo played a vital part to steer Masandawana to their fourth successive PSL title this season. In the process, they secured a record eighth league crown with the Brazilians, a feat no other player has ever realized in the history of South African football.

Of the eight titles, Kekana won two while with SuperSport United, a team he played for from 2008-2010. He then joined Sundowns in 2011 and has since made 235 appearances, winning six league titles in the process.

“When we started it was all about bettering ourselves,” the 36-year-old midfielder said on his social media accounts. 

“Day in day out, little we knew we were gonna conquer the continent let alone going as far as Club World Cup.

“We worked, we are still working for generations to come. Keep representing in that jersey,” said the experienced midfielder addressing Onyango recalling the time they joined the Brazilians together.
