Teko Boost For Sundowns
28 November 2012
Mamelodi Sundowns have been boosted by the return of captain Teko Modise, who will be available for the Telkom Knockout final against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday, December 1.
The former Orlando Pirates player was doubtful for the league cup final, having missed his team’s 1-0 league win over Siwelele last weekend. Modise was nursing an injury on his right leg, however has since been declared available for selection.
Modise told the Siya crew that coach Johan Neeskens has got a strong squad available for selection. The South African international is confident leading up to the final, with the aim of lifting the trophy.
“Yes I am ready to play on Saturday and I have played in many cup finals before, but have not won anything so I would love to play and lift the trophy in the Telkom Knockout,” said Modise.
“You know even them (in last weekend’s league game), they had some players out through injury and suspension, so did we, and this time around it will be a different ball game.
“We will go out there and fight to lift the cup,” concluded the Bafana Bafana midfielder.
