When Teko Modise was applying his trade at Orlando Pirates, he shone.
He shone up to the point where so much pressure was put on him to succeed that it actually affected him. At the FIFA World Cup in 2010 he completely underperformed and was eventually sold to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Now he has become Sundowns best player as a result of the faith shown by the club. He could have played alongside players like Oupa Manyisa and Kermit Erasmus for many years, and that would have been a devastating prospect.
Is his form a slap in the face for Pirates?
