Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane is pleased that his decision to join the Tshwane club has kept him in the hunt for trophies. 

The former Bafana Bafana playmaker, 35, spent eight successful seasons with Kaizer Chiefs, winning two league titles, the Telkom Knockout, the Nedbank Cup and two MTN8 titles with Amakhosi.

Moving into the twilight of his career, Letsholonyane departed Chiefs for SuperSport two seasons ago and has already won the Nedbank Cup with the Pretoria team.

Showing that his appetite for success has far from diminished, Letsholonyane is determined to help SuperSport beat Cape Town City in Saturday's 2017 MTN8 final in Durban, the fifth time he'll be playing in a top eight final.

"Me joining SuperSport was not just to add numbers," the former Jomo Cosmos man told KickOff website.

"I wanted to carry on with the momentum of winning trophies (after leaving Chiefs).

"Last season, with the help of the coach (Stuart Baxter) and the technical team, we managed to win the Nedbank Cup and unfortunately we lost the Telkom Knockout (to City).

"Already this season, with (the) help of our new coach (Eric Tinkler) we are in the final of the MTN8. For me it's about staying hungry and wanting to contribute as much as possible to the team's success."
