Maluleka unhappy with Teko

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka has revealed why he is disappointed in a decision of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Teko Modise.

Modise recently decided to hang up his boots following a glittering career filled with collective success at various clubs as well as individual accolades, and has since been handed a new role at Cape Town City.

The former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns star is also considered by many as a legend of the local game, despite a late start to his professional career, as he also reached the heights of international football in featuring at the 2010 FIFA World Cup on home soil.

However, the 36-year-old’s decision has not gone down very well with Maluleka, as he feels Modise still had plenty to offer on the field of play.

“It’s good to see a boy from eKasi have a very, very successful career in football, and I don’t want to lie I wasn’t happy with the retirement,” said Maluleka.

“But I think it was for a reason, and yeah, now he’s got an office job at Cape Town City, so I’m very happy for him and congratulations to him.”

Modise’s trophy cabinet includes winners’ medals from the prestigious CAF Champions League, CAF Super Cup, Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup (all with Sundowns) and Telkom Knockout (Sundowns and Cape Town City) and the MTN 8 (with Pirates), as well as two PSL Footballer of the Season trophies.
