The 36-year-old was let go by the league champions after completing an impressive decade at the club, and now he is a free agent with a couple of PSL clubs showing interest in his services.
Upon joining Mamelodi Sundowns about 10 years ago, Hlompho Kekana was a target to both Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs but opted to join Mamelodi Sundowns instead. At that time, Masandawana was yet to establish their dominance in the Premier Soccer League and to Kekana, he wasn't joining a PSL giant but rather a growing team.
Kekana went on to help Mamelodi Sundowns rise to glory and be a PSL giant which they are now. Bra Hlompho is no doubt a legend of the game with his collection of awards being one to admire. The Limpopo born midfielder had a very successful career with Mamelodi Sundowns and was the first ever Sundowns captain to lift the CAF Champions League.
Before leaving Mamelodi Sundowns, Hlompho Kekana had penned down a new deal which many saw it as an indication that Kekana will retire at Chloorkop. But things took a dramatic turn and Kekana's contract was terminated via mutual agreement.
His departure from Mamelodi Sundowns does not mean the end of his career as he says, and his willing to graze the pitch for a couple of seasons more. Hlompho Kekana has been rumoured to be in line to return to Limpopo and play for one of the teams at his home province.
Despite Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates having had interest ten years ago for Kekana, now that he is a free agent neither team has made any movements to try and sign Kekana. In terms of options, Kekana may very well scratch out Soweto as a possible destination.
