Hlompho Kekana is an active legend for his longevity, personality, and professionalism. He is one hell of a long-range goalscorer!


We all surely have a favourite or two from the veteran midfielder’s archives. The flying bullets against Orlando Pirates? His cracker in Cameroon? The electric shot against Cape Town City at Lucas Moripe? There’s plenty more to choose from.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star took some time to chat about his goals via the MTN FC’s podcast.

The Zabadiele-born revealed his brother appreciates his spectacular goals, but fears that they are insults to goalkeepers.

“I love scoring those goals. I have done it many times. My younger brother calls them insults, he says I am insulting the goalkeepers,” Hlompho Kekana said with a big smile on his face.

“I call them art. It is something I worked on and practiced for about 10 years. It is something that I love doing. When you look at it, it looks easy but it was not easy,” he concluded.


In related news, the 36-year-old midfielder, who is yet to find a new club since leaving Kabo Yellow in recent months, revealed how Patrice Motsepe left a great influence on his life.

The ex-Bafana Bafana star went on his Twitter to wish Motsepe a happy birthday – but it was more than just an ordinary wish.

“Happy birthday to the CAF president,” Kekana said.

“The man has influenced my life in so many ways and today we celebrate him,” added the former Black Leopards, Bloemfontein Celtic, and SuperSport United number eight.
