The historic return of the ormer Orlando Pirates star Teko Modise has become the major story that is making the waves in South Africa world of football.

Regarded as one of the greatest PSL players of the modern era today, Modise’s career began in the lower leagues of South African football with Ria Stars and City Pillars. During his time with the latter, he won the Mvela Golden LeaguePlayer of the Season award, which earned him a move to top-flight side Superpsort United in 2006. The following season he joined local rivals Orlando Pirates with whom he spent six years, winning two PSL Footballer of the Yearawards, including the inaugural award, and two club honours. Whilst at Pirates, he earned the nickname “the General” for his ability to direct play and soon became a regular within the national team set-up.


However, the General is said to have met Orlando Pirates Chairman in a close door meeting for 3 hours, discussing the possibilities of him returning back to Pirates anytime soon.
