Cape Town - Thanduyise Khuboni has heaped praise on Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana, hailing him as one of the most complete midfielders in the Absa Premiership.

The Mpumalanga Black Aces defensive midfielder believes the 30-year-old is underrated by the media, and says he allows the more attacking players like Castro, Billiat and Dolly to play with creative freedom.

"Hlompho is a quality player. He's got everything that you need in a defensive midfielder and one aspect of his game that has improved this season is that he goes forward a lot," Khuboni told Soccer Laduma.

"For me, this season he is a complete defensive midfielder, because when Sundowns defend, he's there and when they attack, he's there as well.

"He reminds me of Kagisho Dikgacoi in that he can find a teammate with a pass from anywhere.

"The players who grab the headlines are those who score and help the team win, but Kekana is one of the best players at Sundowns."
