Farewell To The Orchestrator – Reader’s Voice


One of the most important and influential players in South Africa, Teko Modise, recently bid farewell to professional football after playing his final match in the PSL earlier this month.  



The guard of honour and the captaincy entrusted to him by Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy in his final match embodied his influence on the local game.



Modise was a menacing midfielder who was tailored to lead, rule, pause and restart the game. His silky touches saw him winning the PSL Player of the Season award for two years in succession during the peak of his career.  To this day, he is the only player to win the prestigious individual accolade on two consecutive occasions.



Modise has accumulated all domestic winner's medals. The big win for 'The General' was arguably the CAF Champions League in 2016. He added the CAF Super Cup winner's medal to his already decorated medal cabinet.



A man of his art, whether he received or released the ball, was some sight to see and we might never see a player like Modise again.
