Letsholonyane looks to outsmart former teammates to MTN8 title

Reading Time: < 1 minute

One could be forgiven for calling newly signed Highlands Park veteran midfielder Reneilwe “Yeye” Letsholonyane “Mr MTN8”.

Back in 2008, in the first cup final of Wafa-Wafa, Letsholonyane featured in his first cup final for Amakhosi and scored the winning penalty.

He was part of the losing team in the Soweto Derby final of 2011 but would come back and having the bragging rights in the 2014 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium. He got another silver medal in Steve Komphela’s first season at Amakhosi in 2015 losing to Ajax in the final.

And two seasons ago the Soweto born midfielder won the trophy with SuperSport United but got another silver medal last season.

Can he be the lucky charm for Owen Da Gama’s boys in the final on Saturday (Kick-off at 18:00) at Orlando Stadium against his former team?

SABC Sport journalist Velile Mnyandu spoke to the 37-year-old at Highlands Park training earlier this week and he brings some advantages against his former team. Report by Velile Mnyandu
