Sundowns legend hails Teko Modise

Former Mamelodi Sundowns legend Roger Feutmba believes the recently retired Teko Modise ought to be considered a great of South African football.

Modise retired recently after a successful stint with Cape Town City but it was earlier in his career with Mamelodi Sundowns where his performances drew accolades.

The 36-year-old playmaker won two Premiership titles, the CAF Champions League and Super Cup, as well as the Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup. The only trophy he did not win was the MTN8.

As such, Feutmba, who starred for Downs from 1996 until 1999 and won the South African Players' Player of the Season in 1998/99, takes the view that the 'General' is a legend.

He said: "I watched him playing for many years, not only for Sundowns, and we can say he is one of the South African football legends for his contribution.

"To say that he is a Sundowns legend? Yes, why not?

"He has played a huge part for Sundowns, too. He was a very good player and he was highly talented.

"He was a good player for Sundowns and for South African football."
