Downs remember Madisha on family visit


Mamelodi Sundowns players will always remember the late Motjeka Madisha as a very humble and fun person to be around.

The Brazilians' players and technical team took off time from training on Thursday to visit the Madisha family in Ga-Madisha village in Zebediela.

'Ace' as Madisha was affectionately known will be laid to rest in Limpopo on Saturday after passing away in December last year in a car accident near Kempton Park.

Defender Mosa Lebusa says Madisha was always full of smiles at training and always gave 120 percent commitment during games.

"We lost a good player, a brother, a friend. It's not easy, but hopefully and eventually we will get over it. But he will be forever in our hearts," said Lebusa after visiting the Madisha family with his teammates yesterday.

"There is a lot I remember about him but the most memories we shared were really special. I will always think of a person who was never sad, always had a smile on his face.

"He was too playful but what I liked about that, as playful as he was, as irritating as he was, when it comes to the match he would give you 120 percent, no doubt about that."

Striker Kermit Erasmus remembers Madisha for his love of 'spy-twos'.

"Very humble and always smiling, always joking around especially when a player gets put through the legs, we call it 'spy-two'. He would laugh even if it's in the game, whether it's his player or opposition player," added Erasmus.

"He was a very fun person to be around, very humble and positive."
