While players like Khama Billiat and Percy Tau have been recognized in the Premier Soccer League awards as they both received the coveted Footballer of the Season gong last season and 2016 respectively, it has been Kekana who has been overlooked for an individual prize.
The Masandawana skipper has been nominated for the Midfielder of the Season and Footballer of the Season for a number of times and has finished second best in all occasions.
“As a Sundowns team we have shown and proven over the years that we deserve to be counted among the best teams and best players in the country because of the performances that we have been giving throughout the seasons. We have been dominating and competing in that space for the past six years and we have set a record of 71 points in the league in 2016. We went on to win the Champions League and the Telkom Knockout,” said Kekana.
“It is something that we deserve to be rewarded for the work that we put in every game that we play. We always compete in the Champions League and that serves a big purpose and as a country we are being recognized as a team that is playing a brand of football that represents South Africa,” he added.
