Now 36 years old, Letsholonyane has continued to play at the highest level and has shown no signs of slowing down.
The veteran midfielder played a key role as Matsatsantsa booked a place in the final of the MTN8 and Tembo admitted that he is surprised with the hunger that 'Yeye' continues to show despite a successful career.
"With 'Yeye' he's a rare breed, you know. It's very difficult to find players like him at his age, still having the hunger and desire to succeed. I think that's key. When the hunger and desire is no longer there, it becomes a different thing," Tembo told KickOff.
"He's a very important player for us, although he knows sometimes he won't play all the games, but when he is called upon to play he is always ready to give his all.
"He works very hard at training and he had a good attitude towards matches. It does not necessarily mean he won't have an off day. He will have an off day like anyone else in terms of performance, but we understand that. What's key is what he brings to the team."
