Downs Madalas – How Have They Performed?

Names like Bongani Zungu, Khama Billiat and Themba Zwane are some of the most talented youngsters at Mamelodi Sundowns. However, one cannot exclude the fact that some of the older players in the team have been vital for 'Downs in the last couple of seasons, especially in their title winning campaign last season in the Absa Premiership.

With that said, the Fan Park crew will now take a look at some of the Downs players over the age of 30 and how they have performed this season.

Teko Modise – 32

The Navigator, as he is known to many in the local football fraternity, has arguably been Downs' best player in the last two seasons. Modise modified his game ever so well in the latter stages of his career, as he went from being a crowd pleasing trickster to an authentic playmaker.

Alje Schut – 33

Schut has been one of the most inspirational captains at Chloorkop in recent times and his performances were crucial last season’s league trophy wining campaign.  After announcing that he will leave Downs at the end of the season, he will no doubt be missed, and whoever fills in for the Dutchman will no doubt have his work cut out for himself.

Surprise Moriri – 34

The evergreen Tsamaya master is still one of the most skilful attackers in the South African game, and although first team opportunities have been hard to come by, Moriri has rarely disappointed whenever called upon this season.

Thabo Nthethe - 30

Calm, collected and composed are all the adjectives used to describe the former Bloemfontein Celtic man, as he continues to soldier on as one of the veterans in the current Downs outfit. Mr. Cool and Schut have formed a formidable centre back paring for Downs in recent times and it will no doubt continue in that fashion for the remainder of the campaign.

What other Downs madala’s do you think deserve a mention?
