Teko Modise has been revealed as a Cape Town City player by the club after being released by Mamelodi Sundowns as a free agent.

Modise had a successful spell with the Brazilians as he won more trophies at Downs than with any other team.

He will be joining the likes of Lyle Lakay, Ayanda Patosi and Jeitoso. They will also be led by Benni McCarthy as the new head coach.

“CTCFC is delighted to announce the signing of Teko Modise! The midfielder adds further quality and depth to the squad as we prepare to compete both domestically and in the CAFCC. Teko is determined to bring further success to the club, and become part of the story of the boys in Blue&Gold.

CTCFC family, join us in welcoming Teko to his new home in the City of Cape Town!

#iamCityFC,” City confirmed.

Teko Modise is delighted that the Absa Premiership season has come to an end as the games were coming thick and fast for Mamelodi Sundowns in all competitions.

“Finally the season is over and it was a good run. It may not have finished the way that we wanted it to end but nonetheless we finished second. This will at least slow down the pace of the games that we have to play. Now we can focus on the CAF Champions League games and have time prepare properly,” said Modise.

Asked if the team was not disappointed with not being able to lift the PSL title, Modise chose to be content with what the team has already achieved in this past season.

“Yes it would have been great to lift the title but you cannot win everything. The past season was a historical one for the team and us as players individually. So if we just linger on the disappointment of not lifting the PSL title we would not be doing ourselves justice. We had a great season.”

Downs will next face ES Tunis in their CAF competition fixture on June 02.

Teko Modise says that the two remaining games of the season will decide who lifts the Absa Premiership trophy come May 27.

Mamelodi Sundowns are second on the log trailing Bidvest Wits by two points. Wits slipped up and got beaten by Free State Stars in their last fixture but Downs could not make use of the advantage as they drew against Baroka FC.

“It is tough and there is no claiming that you will win any of the remaining fixtures. Teams are looking to escape relegation and some are gunning for the trophy,”Modise said.

Downs though have fixtures against Maritzburg United who want to keep their top 8 position and Highlands Park who want to escape the chop.

“It will not be easy but we have to stay focused and take it a game at a time. We start with the United match and aim for three points. Then we can focus on the last hurdle and hope that luck is on our side. Let us see what happens,” Modise concluded.

Teko Modise and team mates were on the winning side again when they gave Golden Arrows a 2-0 beating.

Goals by Mzikayise Mashaba and Hlompho Kekana were enough to give the African champions three points and take them to the top of the Absa Premiership table.

Pitso Mosimane and his troops are sitting pretty at the top of the table with many feeling like they hold the advantage of lifting the honours.

Downs will face Platinum Stars on Thursday to lead the way to the finish line with just less than 6 matches left to lay for the season. They will play at home at the Lucas Moripe Stadium with the match scheduled to kick-off at 18:00.

Mamelodi Sundowns finally got a win after a string of draws and defeats. The Brazilians grafted a 1-0 win against Free State Stars at the James Motlatsi Stadium.

A goal by Motjeka Madisha  before closing of the first half made sure that Downs return home with three points, taking them to fourth position on the log with 41 points from 21 games in total. They are now on the same number of games as Bidvest Wits who are third because of goal difference.

One would say that Downs have lost the advantage of having games in hand as they now only have 3 games in hand in contrast to Kaizer Chiefs as the team with the most games played (24).

Pitsi Mosimane and crew will face Supersport United in their next fixture on 19 April at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Mamelodi Sundowns have hit a deep in form as they exited the Nedbank Cup in the last 16 stage of the competition.

A 1-0 loss to KwaZulu-Natal side Golden Arrows sees the African Champions bow out of the competition. This follows their 0-0 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic and a loss against Kaizer Chiefs.

The dip of form though is no concern to Teko Modise and teammates as he states that it is just the way football is.

“Look we are sad after having to exit the Nedbank Cup but this does not mean we are all of a sudden a team that plays bad football. It is natural to lose once in a while, we cannot win every game we play.

Yes it is great to win but that is just like life. Sometimes things go your way and sometimes they do not. We have to soldier on and the good days will return in time. We take the loss and we move on,” concluded Modise.

Teko ‘The General’ Modise has praised fellow Mamelodi Sundowns team-mates for representing their country in the national team.

“The game was a great one. The team went out there and got a win. Praise must be given to the lads but most importantly I am proud of my teammates who are part of the team. I think that they are displaying the same effort as they do in the team,”said Modise.

Percy Tau made his debut for the national team and scored a goal. Modise says he is excited for the young man.

“Look he has done well. He is growing training by training and game by game. Now we see him in national colors and he scores a goal, amazing. Well done to him and all the young guys in the squad. Forca Bafana! (Up with Bafana).

Mamelodi Sundowns cruised to a 2-0 win against Mariveni United in their last 32 Nedbank Cup fixture on Monday but Teko Modise says there is never an easy cup game.

“Look it was a good win for the team. We played well and at the end of the day got the desired results.

You hear a lot of people say it was an easy game for us to play. I do not think so. Remember that this is a competition where all the teams are looking to impress and play at their best. So we had to respect the opponents just like any team we play,” said Modise.

Downs are through to the next stage of the competition and ‘The General’ has welcomed any opponent that would be drawn against them going forward. He also added that it would be too early to even think of lifting the domestic silverware.

“We are professionals and will just wait to know who to face next. We do not wish to get any specific team so we welcome whoever we will have to face. As for thinking of lifting the trophy, it is too early to even think of that. We are through to the next round and will take it a game at a time.”

Mamelodi Sundowns experienced midfield player Teko Modise echoed the word of Coach Pitso Mosimane after a loss to now league log leaders Cape Town City FC.

The Absa Premiership provided South Africa with a mouth-watering encounter on Friday as Sundowns visited City down in Cape Town at the Athlone Stadium.

The red hot Brazilian side was expected by many to come out victors of the match but it was not to be so. City snatched through contention a 1-0 win over the African Champions. A goal from Lebogang Manyama was enough to see Eric Tinkler and his ambitious squad humble the yellow nation.

Teko Modise on a positive side mentioned the fact that the team has a few games in hand and can still afford to drop a few points now and then.

“Yes it was disappointing to lose. We have won a lot of matches and it was a matter of time before we had to succumb to a loss. This is football and you cannot win all the matches. This one was one we tried best to win but at the end of the day they were the better team.

There is nothing more to say but to take it on the chin and look forward to doing better in the next fixture, “said Modise.

Downs next face Polokwane City on March 14 when the league continues.

Mamelodi Sundowns drew 0-0 with Chippa United this morning as they saw to finish the match that was postponed on Tuesday evening at Loftus Stadium.

There were lighting problems at the stadium and the game was halted in the 42nd minute. Teko Modise saw the positive side of the whole situation and says that the team welcome the point.

“Look it was a tough game. It is difficult to play a match in two different days because there are a lot of factors to consider. But the point will do for now. We accept it and move on, “said Modise.

The general as he is affectionately known has not scored a goal this season and has not received as much play time as he would have liked. He gives a brief response to the situation: “Well it is always great to get some play time. It has been a while and it would have been nice to find the back of the net.

I am not complaining though as there will be more games to play and a lot to contribute for the team.”

Downs play Cape Town City on the coming weekend down at the Athlone Stadium. Kick-off is set for 20:00.
