Cape Town - SuperSport
United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane is determined to add a CAF
winners' medal to his impressive collection of silverware.
The former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana play-maker has two league
winners' medals to his name and has also won the Nedbank Cup (twice),
the Telkom Knockout and the MTN8 competitions.
Letsholonyane will be out to try and help Matsatsantsa reach the 2017
MTN8 final when they take on Maritzburg United in a second leg
semi-final match at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday (the first leg
"I believe we will reverse the score against Maritzburg United," Letsholonyane told The Star.
"We will go direct and try to get the result that we want, and move
on to the final. The next four weeks will be hectic for us. But as a
team, we are ready," he added.
It's however the prospect of winning an African title that appears to be Letsholonyane's biggest objective.
The Pretoria side are through to the last eight of the CAF
Confederation Cup and are to face Zambian giants Zesco United home and
away later in September for a shot at making the semis.
"I would love to win the CAF Confederation Cup medal," the 35-year-old admitted.
"If it doesn't happen, it is not the end of the world. There are
other trophies that we need to challenge for, but the CAF medals are the
ones that are missing (in his collection).
"They are the only ones that I haven’t won as a club player. I would
also love to win the big one, the CAF Champions League. It is my desire
to win these trophies.
"It would be an honour and a privilege to be part of the SuperSport
United generation that won the Confederation Cup. It would certainly be a
great feeling for me."
