Angry Barca Chief Tells Star He Can Leave

The ex-Bafana Bafana international was recently a part of LaLiga's new match ball launch in partnership with PUMA, where the man nicknamed "Dona" took the time to praise Barcelona duo Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba.  

Speaking about the two African-born stars, Modise said he was looking forward to seeing if the two teenagers will repay the faith that has been shown in them.

"It is exciting to see the new generation of Spanish stars, especially the ones with strong African roots," he told LaLiga.

"These are superstars that are still young, but are being given opportunities to play for big teams in Spain, like Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba.

"As Africans, we are everywhere and when given opportunities, whether in the country of their birth or adopted countries, you need to embrace it and take it with both hands.

"I think it is the new era of mixed football cultures that will be accepted and will bring in results, so it will be very interesting to see them justify that faith and really make it in football."
