Cape Town - Highlands Park midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane is hoping to add to his medal haul when his new team take on SuperSport United in the MTN8 final on Saturday.

The 37-year-old Letsholonyane joined the Lions of the North on a free transfer late last month after not renewing his contract with Matsatsantsa at the end of last season.

Yeye, as the player is known on the local football circuit, has won plenty in his football career, including two league titles, two MTN8 trophies, one Telkom Knockout and one Nedbank Cup in his time with Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport.

The midfielder though still feels as fit as a fiddle and says he will bring a winning mentality to the Highlands dressing room.

Letsholonyane said, according to the IOL website: "When I decide to retire, that's when you'll know that there’s no passion to play football anymore.

"I would still want to be involved in football but in other capacities, the passion of playing would not be the same as it is.

"So, for as long as I am playing, I want to win - I think I was born a winner."

The MTN8 final will kick-off at 18:00 at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
