Teko Modise finally ended speculations surrounding his career and move to Mamelodi Sundowns. The two-time PSL player of the year parted ways with the football club that made him a household name, Orlando Pirates.

“Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfielder Teko Modise has struck a deal with his current club that will see him join rivals Mamelodi Sundowns ending weeks of speculation around his future. Modise was suspended by Pirates last week after missing the league game against Santos at Orlando Stadium citing personal problems. He was subsequently hauled before the club’s tribunal on earlier today. It was at this gathering that Modise was given the opportunity to leave the club”.

This is what Pirates said on their Facebook page: “Chairman reading the charge sheet relating to Mr Modise. However, it has just been announced that a deal was put forward for Teko Modise last night, which the player has subsequently agreed to. It has been confirmed that Mr Modise and Sundowns have agreed terms and the club has decided not to stand in his way. In light of this the Club will no longer press charges…as of now Mr Modise is no longer a Pirates player.”

And this is what Modise said when addressing the media: “I would like to thank the chairman for the opportunity he has given me. I have been here for 4 good years and I have done all I could do… The time has come that I move on…the team has signed good players like Mayambela and Klate who also need to be afforded the opportunity to grow…I would like to wish the team the best of luck for the rest of the season.”

Modise also adressed his twitter followers with the following tweets:

“From the bottom of my heart I wanna thank every OPFC fan for everything they done for me …I really had a good time”

“I will always be a buccaneer at heart but I have to do this, ur support will forever be grateful to me and my family am what I am because of you”

“If you a true fan of mine you will support me no matter the colour of my next team. I’m going to a new home with my head held very high…thanx”

Personally, I think that this move has been long overdue for Modise and it’s about time he got new inspiration. We all know what a player of his calibre is capable of doing if given the chance. Hopefully Modise will get more game time and show us why he has two PSL player of the year awards under his belt. All the best at your new home “General”.
