Mamelodi Sundowns

Why Modiba Is Wary of Former Club

A player SuperSport United were reluctant to sell could come back to haunt them when they take on Mamelodi Sundowns in the Tshwane Derby this weekend.

Aubrey Modiba left SuperSport for Sundowns after the club had initially stated that they would only sell the player when they get offers from Europe. But after the COVID-19 pandemic had a financial effect on most of the clubs in the local game, Matsatsantsa ended up selling one of their most prized possessions to their rivals before the start of the season.

Modiba has been getting game time recently after a slow start to life at Sundowns and will be hoping to play a role when the sides clash in a top of the table meeting in Tshwane.

Defending champions Sundowns top the standings on 24 points, while SuperSport are two points behind in second place.

“It is good to be part of a team like Mamelodi Sundowns, a team that has so many talented players. I was happy to play three games in a row but it doesn’t stop there. I must just keep working hard so I can add value to the club, there are elements where I feel I need to improve and get to understand everyone. We have been winning games and we just need to keep doing that and get maximum points in all the games we will play,” Modiba told the Sundowns website.

“Interesting game this weekend against my former team, they are a good side and they have been doing well also scoring goals. If you look at the past two games they have played they have scored five goals. They have a good coach, I know him, he always wants nothing but a win and as you can see the position they are in on the log standings. I am looking forward to the game and hopefully, we win the game as it is not nice to lose. The Tshwane Derby is never easy but we are going there to win the game on Saturday.”
