Keagan Dolly recently made a move away from Mamelodi Sundowns to French League One side Montpellier HSC and Teko Modise says young South African players can draw positives from it.

“Keagan Dolly has done well for both his club and his country. It is about time that he takes on a bigger challenge and congratulations to him.

I think that South African players must come to the attention that they can represent their country in the best leagues in the world. It is possible. We see it all over the world where young players are making debuts for big teams.

This must act as an inspiration for upcoming players. One can be sure that we will see more of such moves by SA players. The sky is the limit.”

Mamelodi Sundowns hopes of raching a further stage in the FIFA Club World Cup have been dealt a blow as they lost their quarter final match 2-0 against Kashima Antlers.

Teko Modise says it is a learning curve for the team and that the experience will go a long way in the portfolios of the players, the technical team and the rest of the people from South Africa.

“Look it was sad that we lost. We obviously did not want to come here and lose. We played against a good team that deserves to be here as much as we do. Luck was just not on our side with the game being of two halves.

They got chances and they scored and that is football at the end of the day. But I believe that the experience will go a long way in giving the players and the technical stuff credit in their CV’s. Not only that but this may also show all South Africans that a lot is possible if we work hard and believe.

Can you imagine if this was something all the PSL teams constantly participate in year in and out? It would sky rocket the value of our league and quality of football in our country. This is a learning curve for all of us.”

Teko Modise has confirmed that he is excited by the possibility of having to clinch the Absa Premiership title with a win tonight when Mamelodi Sundowns take on the University of Pretoria.

Sundowns lead the pack with 62 points and are five points ahead of the only team that could catch up with them (Bidvest Wits). They only need a victory to officially make it mathematically impossible for Wits to catch them.

“It is exciting yet we have to be professional about it. There is a job to do against AmaTUKS tonight. All that is in our heads right now is to win the next game and the one after that. It is never over until the fat lady sings. I don’t hear the music yet,” Modise says.

Asked what he feels about the performance of the team this season, ‘the navigator’ applauds his team mates and technical staff for what he believes is a solid season.

“The team has been doing great. I recall at one point in the season we were not winning games but we practiced patience and trusted in the coach. Look where we are now. Applauds must go to the players for wanting to be the best that they can and to the technical staff for making us what we are today. I repeat, the journey is not over yet!”

Sundowns take on AmaTuks tonight at the TUKS Stadium and the kick-off is set for 19:30.

Mamelodi Sundowns finally got the better of Zimbabwean side Chicken Inn on Saturday as they managed to sink in the last punch with a 2-0 victory to move on to the next round of the CAF Champions League.

The match was once again a nail biting fixture between the two sides. Sundowns had to win the match as they were a goal down and looked the lively bunch from the get go. A goal from Wayne Arendse gave Downs the lead and in the dying minutes Katlego Mashego slotted a composed penalty kick to give the Chloorkop based side the win.

After the match Sundowns Coach Pitso Mosimane praised the effort Chicken Inn displaye d and confirmed that they gave them a run for the win.

“Credit to this team [Chicken Inn]. This team is a very good team. These are not fishermen from an island, this is serious football and they gave us a hard time,” Jingles admitted.

Mosimane believes that they have the fighting spirit and can continue playing well in the competition and want to challenge for the honors.

“But my team showed character. When we play like this we are destined for success. We want it [to win the Champions League], we will fight for it.”

Teko Modise of Mamelodi Sundowns has been having a great year in 2015 in his career and he shared his football story with Top Billing as he spent a day with the SABC 3 show.

Teko Modise who is the ambassador of the McDonald’s U14 Schools League Tournament says that he foresees a successful sixth edition of the annual tournament.

McDonald’s launched the national school tournament last week Thursday at the Discovery Soccer Park in Illovo Johannesburg. The tournament is a legacy of the 2010 FIFA South Africa World Cup.

“Being the ambassador has been a privilege for me. It is always great to see the youth getting a chance to start dreaming while knowing that it is possible to make their dreams come true.

The McDonald’s U14 Schools League is a platform for the young and upcoming soccer players to showcase their skills. With motivation from all development initiatives in the country, young players will be motivated to partake in this tournament and that is what we want.

The launch was a huge success and an indication of what is still to come. It will be fascinating to see which province will come out as the best at the end of the tournament in September.”

Teko Modise says he is grateful for the Absa Premiership Awards he was granted on Sunday evening at the annual event that was hosted at the Sandton Convention Center.

Modise walked away with the Nedbank Cup Player of the tournament and the PSL Midfielder of the season awards.

“Look it is great to win awards like these. This is only an indication of the hard work one does throughout the season.

It was a successful campaign by the team and we did all we could to finish with something to show for it. I am grateful to be part of a team like Mamelodi Sundowns and to be recognized for the work I do for the team.

The accolades add to a line of others but remain an encouragement to me. It is humbling when you reap the benefits of what you sow. I would like to thank my team mates, the technical team, supporters and my family for standing behind me all the way. The story continues,” concluded ‘The General’.
