Modiba was named as the PSL’s Young Player Of The Season and selected in the Bafana squad for the COSAFA Cup that has already got underway in Namibia.
Speaking to Soccer Laduma in this week’s edition, issue 976, the 20-year-old admitted that Maritzburg United playmaker Deolin Mekoa is quite a handful.
“I’d say it was Maritzburg United’s Deolin Mekoa. He gave me a good game. He really plays. Even though I know him from our days together back at the School of Excellence, he still gave me tough time, ha, ha,“ Modiba said.
The U23 international star has been a reported target for Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits for quite some time now, as revealed by the Siya crew in May.
