“Mamelodi Sundowns has decided to release Teko Modise from his contractual obligations in order for him to negotiate a good contract for himself at this stage of his football career.
“Mamelodi Sundowns is grateful to Teko for his many years of loyal service to the Club and wishes him everything of the very best.
“Teko played an important part in the two PSL titles and the CAF Championship as well as the CAF Super Cup which Mamelodi Sundowns won during the past season,” concluded the club.
Here's how South African football fans reacted to the news on Tuesday, as soon as Sundowns revealed his departure, with the likes of even Kaizer Chiefs fans expressing their interest.
