In the wake of their CAF Super Cup glory, Mamelodi Sundowns skipper Hlompho Kekana says they are fortunate to have humility among the team.
The Bafana Bfaana midfielder was speaking to the media after their 1-0 win over Democratic Republic of Congo giants, TP Mazembe on Saturday.
A penalty from defender Ricardo Nascimento ensure the CAF Champions League winners added another continental trophy to their cabinet.
'KK' said he is proud to lead a bunch of professionals as they continue to make their name in club continental football.

“I think we are fortunate as Sundowns players to have this humility amongst us. We know very well that in football you have to have the desire," said Kekana.
"We want to play as many games as we can. We know that we are representing a big brand and that comes with a lot of challenges.
“We are a team that really wants to win at all times. We need to be on top of our game every time we take to the pitch.
"I'm glad that I'm leading a bunch of professionals and they know their responsibilities in terms of what we are expecting from them.
“We can't drop the ball now as we are the African champions. We have to put the trophy (the Super Cup) in the cabinet and start grinding again."
Kekana will hope to lead the Tshwane giants to a successful Absa Premiership title defence when they meet Platinum Stars on Tuesday night in Rustenburg.
