Masinga: Kekana missed out on Europe move

Kekana is tipped for the Player of the Season award

Bafana Bafana legend Phil Masinga has pointed out how Hlompho Kekana is too old to move to Europe.

The Mamelodi Sundowns star has been in outstanding form this season, seeing his career peak at a late stage.

“I think age counts against him in terms of going to play overseas,” Masinga told

“He has also not earned a lot of caps for the national team as he is a late starter for Bafana Bafana.

“So, that also makes it very difficult for him to move abroad as in other countries you get a working permit having played a lot for your national team.”

Nevertheless, Masinga is hopeful that Kekana will be motivated to achieve everything in the PSL, and establish himself at Bafana.

“He has had a solid season with Sundowns and I think he will win a lot of trophies,” Masinga continued to Goal.

“The best thing for him now is to continue writing his own history in the PSL because he has proved over and over that he is a quality player.”
