Kekana determined to clinch treble for Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana is hungry for more silverware as the Chloorkop outfit prepare to resume their Nedbank Cup and Premiership campaigns.

Masandawana are still in with a shot at a treble. They have already secured the Telkom Knockout title, are in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup, and are four points behind league leaders Kaizer Chiefs with a game in hand over their rivals.

Kekana is determined to fight for each piece of silverware but knows it will be a tough ask.

"This is going to be my seventh league title. It will be the third time in a row for us. This will also be the 10th for Mamelodi Sundowns. The club is also celebrating its 50th anniversary and we also want to win the treble. That is the goal of the club," said Kekana, as quoted by IOL.

"But we have to beat Bidvest Wits (in the Nedbank semis). Our games against Wits are always difficult."

Sundowns take on Wits on August 8 in the Nedbank Cup before resuming their league campaign against Orlando Pirates three days later.

"There's a lot of motivation for us in the last remaining matches, that's for sure. We all understand the importance of winning," Kekana added.

"Our mental strength will be required in these last games. There are a lot of things that are not football related that are going to be happening. We have to control what we can and that is going to require mental strength. We will try to stay focused and win our matches."
