Mamelodi Sundowns veteran Hlompho Kekana says he signed a new long-term deal with the club because he is hungry for more silverware.

The 34-year-old recently penned a new four-year contract and insists he is as motivated as ever to battle for trophies with Masandawana.

"To be honest, if you've tasted that amount of success that we’ve enjoyed at Sundowns, you want more. So, there's that drive from us to look for more," Kekana told Independent Media.

"I renewed my contract because I know we are a team of winners. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile to win trophies."

Kekana, who has been with the Chloorkop outfit since 2011, has made 33 appearances for Sundowns across all competitions this season and scored four goals.

He added: "It is a plan to always try and win every match and the trophies which we compete for. We always want to improve as a team and do the undoable.

"We want to continue winning trophies. I remember when we first won the Champions League, we never had the belief that we will win it. So, I still believe that as a team we have what it takes to win [more] trophies."
