In a season where SuperSport United equaed Kaizer Chiefs' 19-game unbeaten run, one player that has been a standout performer in the heart of their midfield has been Reneilwe Letsholonyane.

The veteran midfielder has credited the talent within the team for his stellar displays.

“I always believe each play I create will go on to benefit the whole of the team, especially in the attacking third,” Letsholonyane told The Star newspaper.

“You have to believe, not only in yourself but in your teammates as well. At SuperSport, I play with a group of talented players and we always make each other look good. I’ve got teammates who are also good with the ball and that makes it easier for the team to tick moving forward. That’s what has worked for us. We work hard for one another,” Letsholonyane added.

SuperSport are currently in fifth position on the Premier Soccer League (PSL) table, 10 points behind log leaders Bidvest Wits.

Nevertheless, Letsholonyane has conceded that SuperSport are out of the running for the league title, but maintains they will still challenge for Nedbank Cup and Caf Confederation Cup honours.

“Going into this season, we told ourselves that we would challenge for everything that’s on offer for us,” Letsholonyane said.

“The league title is out of our hands,” conceded the midfield maestro. 

“However, we’ve also done well in both our Nedbank Cup and the Caf Confederation Cup campaigns. We reached the group stages on the continent and we are in the Nedbank semi-finals,” Letsholonyane added.
