'In my era no one was close to me' - Ex Pirates & Sundowns Star Confidently Boasts

Confidence is key in football as it accounts for much more then just talent. It can heko a player perform better and even feel better about themselves, however too much of it can be considered as arrogance. It is important for anyone who is under the public microscope to maintain balance and this retired footballe looks to have mastered this. He remains humble about his achievements, however he sometimes enjoys affirming himself and this is not without reason.

This star has been through it all as far as public scrutiny goes, he went from the most loved to the most hated and back again. He evolved and matured over the years and people are finally starting to appreciate his genius. Many rated him highly and there's no do doubt that he gets complimented a lot by his adoring fans.

Ball Game SA shared an extract clip from an interview Teko Modise did. He can be heard confidently claiming that no one came close in his class. This was met by conflicting responses from the fans as other agreed while others claimed Reneilwe Letsholonyane was probably better from the same era. There are couple of names that come to mind, however Teko Modise's name instantly brings back memories.

He was nicknamed The General for his ability to control the game and flair. This was a personality he wore on the field and he has continued to take this over to his current career. He is not only loved by fans but peers as well as current and former PSL players always speak highly of him.

This was a rare flex from Teko Modise and he probably deserves if for the career he had. He didn't win a lot of trophies but he got to life the ultimate prize when he won the CAF champions league with Mamelodi Sundowns back in 2016. He also had troubles with his international career but that doesn't put a dent on his talent and what we know he was capable off. It is amazing to note his maturity over the year as he become a role model for many.
