Modise lands new Sundowns role

Premiership

Teko Modise and Tiyani Mabunda have returned to Mamelodi Sundowns after being appointed as ambassadors for the club.

The reigning DStv Premiership champions have welcomed back two club legends in Modise and Mabunda after announcing that the duo will serve as ambassadors for the Masandawana. 

Mabunda recently retired from football after spending the last eight seasons with Sundowns while Modise starred for the Pretoria-based giants between 2011 and 2017, with both players enjoying great success with the club.

The latter won two league titles and the 2016 CAF Champions League trophy and reveals that he is now hoping to contribute to further success off the pitch.

"I am very honoured and humbled to be back, everyone knows what I achieved with the club," Modise told Mamelodi Sundowns Magazine.

"To be back here is something that I thought would never happen. I have won trophies with the club and have memories here with all the superstars I played with.

"...Being back as a brand ambassador is an exciting journey, the supporters are always thrilled when they can identify with a personality that can relate to them.

"I can't wait to go out to further amplify the brand of the club to make sure we keep dominating, not only on the field but in all spaces. We want to make sure that the players are more relatable with the masses and those are some of the reasons we are here."
