Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Hlompho Kekana is excited about the club's prospects in the MTN8 and CAF Champions League finals next month.
It all starts on Saturday in the MTN8 final against Bidvest Wits at Mbombela Stadium. After that, Kekana will lead the Brazilians against Zamalek over two legs in the culmination of the Champions League on 14 and 21 October.
If the Pretoria outfit are successful in both competitions, as the captain Kekana will be the first Sundowns player to get his hands on the trophies.
"It's going to be great feeling, compared to none," he told Vodacom Soccer. "I was still at school when I saw Orlando Pirates win the Champions League in 1995 but they're still remembered even now.
"It shows how big this is. The MTN8 is also a trophy that we haven't won as a club. I am enjoying myself at the moment. This is something that I will cherish for a very long time."
Sundowns defied a hectic schedule to reach the two finals and played five matches in the last two weeks alone. Thankfully, they will have had a rare seven-day gap between their last game and the MTN8 final this weekend so should be well rested.
"We are excited as a team," Kekana added. "We are enjoying the moment. We are proud of ourselves because we are in two cup finals. This is huge. We just want to go out there, enjoy ourselves and live our dreams.
"It's a special feeling being here because we set ourselves goals that we thought were unreachable and ridiculous. But now we are seeing that they are possible which is what makes us enjoy this moment."
