Mamelodi Sundowns’ Teko Modise wants Bafana return

The former Sundowns captain last played for Bafana almost a year ago, but he feels there’s so much to offer to the national team

Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise believes he still has more to offer to the national team than a lot of fans can imagine.

Modise hasn’t been called-up to represent his country for a while now, and the former Orlando Pirates man reveals he’s been telling his Sundowns’ teammates that he wants to play for Bafana again.

“I’ve been telling everyone in the team that I want to go back and play for Bafana Bafana, because there is so much that I can offer to the national team,” Modise told reporters.

Modise, who turns 31 later this year, doesn’t think he’s too old to return to Bafana, but he believes a lot of youngsters coming through can learn from their seniors.

However, he understands that he would have to improve his game if he really wants to return to the Bafana setup.

“This thing about me being too old, check all around the world, every team has experienced players blending with youngsters, but I respect that I have to work hard and return to the days when I used to play with a smile on my face,” concluded Modise.
