    ah mara Teko we will miss you mfana omdala,we would like to have you the rest of our life unfortunate no permanent contract in football

  11. Bucks says:

    Teko should have been given extension. I think the reason not to renew is because of age but Teko at 34 can give us another year of football, JUST MY THINKING…All the best NTWANA

    • Lujah says:

      Ours was to be an extension without any signing on fee whilst where he’ll go, he’ll sign a new contract with pecks which he’ll pocket for himself without any existing contractual obligations…..I suppose its a very good decision for a player of his age, which is what players worldwide do…

    • eddie says:

      His agent was stubborn he wanted Pitso to play him regularly and that was not going to happen

  12. All the best General i real enjoy watching you playing for DOWNS please release Mweene Sky is the Limit…..

    All the best to the general Teko Dona Modise wish you well in your future endeavour I wish in future you will return to help downs in producing the kind of midfielder of our own culture you are the one who knows down’s playing culture.yellow nation will mis you

  20. Rhuucoster says:

    Y so early Teko? I ws expecting another 2 yrs 4 u. Anyway all de best

  21. Rudolph Makubelo says:

    we, Fans, were still brilliantly believing in such a player of Teko’s destitute. We are massively ashamed of this kind of heart breaking news that one if fans favourite is not gonna roll the ball for prominent Masandawana fans.
    We can’t say go well, nor best of luck as we still need him in our family.

  22. ayanda says:

    I wish you all the best the General, you did your part and contributed to our success and legacy.While you look for another club, also do your coaching classes because SA must not lose players of your calibre in football, follow in the steps of Bennie , Tinkler, Pitso, Kompela, Roger de Sa etc to mention .Your legs at your age may not carry you too far however your football brain can take you somewhere up there. God bless you.We need to beef up our team with two central defenders and one or two strikers, there is no need of midfileders we are fine. Manyama and Mnyamane can make a difference in our team. We need outstanding players at sundowns not average players like Rivaldo who has been exposed badly at Bafana Bafana, together with his culprit in crime, Matoho. We do not need Mekoa from Marisburg ,where is he going to play ,what is special with him that we do not have in our midfield.

    • ayanda says:

      One other thing ,lets not let Asavela Mbekile to leave, he made a huge contribution in us winning the champions league, in my view Mbekile is far better than ,Ngcongca and Zwane the right back.Mbekile is supposed to be competing with Morena in that position period.

  23. Mthobisi mbeje says:

    Ti all the best boy


  25. yellow boss says:

    Thank you for your service to the yellow machine and i wish you the best in your final contract.

  26. Mfana says:

    Go well go Teko u’ve done this and that for the team.I think now that will open the space for the upcoming youngsters from development ranks we can’t keep on holding on players that were not developed by us Sundowns. He benefited &we benefited from his contributions.Its high time to let go of Teko, his contributions r immeasurable.

  27. Ronnie Bothma says:

    One of the best players to play football in this country. I feel you left one year too early. We at Sundowns will always remember you. Personally i’m sad to see you go. But obviously i don’t see what happens behind the scenes. You have served the game well! Goodluck!

  28. Jerry Tshabalala says:

    Very sad to lose Teko, he is very disciplined, skillful and talented. Teko is very humble and it is sad he is leaving. Him and Surprise Moriri shouldn’t have left. Some of the things in football, particularly Downs are painful.

  29. X man says:

    Thank u Teko for displaying gud football I wish u all the best in future yes there are no permanent contracts in futball

  30. papa wisy says:

    First was Moriri and now Teko.farewell general,all the best

  31. Sello says:

    Thanks ,wish you all the really served the sundowns family well.

  32. Sello says:

    Consider joining baroka ,your experience will be highly appreciated there

  33. mandla weSundowns says:

    We wish you all the best General, you served us with distinction and you will die a Yellow Man.

  34. Frans says:

    Thanks the General!you proved the world wrong by taking many trophies at Downs.You served as a leader.Good luck!

  35. Evidence says:

    Go well mr Modise may God bless u abundantly…

  36. mashasha says:

    Thank you Teko for everything you have done for us we will forever salute you same as Surprise Moriri.Eish football sometimes is cruel.Not easy to let you go but all the best in ur career ahead of u

  37. mashasha says:

    Some players deserve a formal farewell when they leave a club same as John Terry at Chelsea.Suprise,Teko deserve one in my opinion.
    Or mayb a special game organised by the club just for them in the near future .The guys were very loyal to us.Mayb I am out of order Masandawana

  38. Da Prof says:

    He represented out badge and brand very well! I WISH HIM WELL!Salute Navigator!

  39. Da Prof says:

    Our badge!

  40. mandla says:

    But how can u compare Miriri with Teko?Teko my boy it was time to look else where hopefully u will do like the other veterans,,,u got ur chance frm PJ Stars,SSU,Pirates n Sundowns,,soo u can go to Chiefs plus u will free to them

  41. Joseph says:

    Bad news to lose one of the best in the country. All the best Teko, you still the best jersey no:10 I’ve seen in SA football. Hope you choose the next team wisely as you deserve to be in the XI of any tean in SA. Thanks for your service my man, you did that with distinctions, we will miss you a lot. Your combination with or your eye for Alje Schut with those free kicks and corner kicks was one of the best I’ve never seen. ka bo yellow.

  42. Jaws Buda says:

    I did not see this one coming I thought they were going to extend your contract with one year since there is only one medal that is still missing in your collection MTN 8 but go well General wish you all the best for the future you have served us with flying colours.KBY

  43. Bongani fire mdatya says:

    I stl remember the best last game you played when we beating golden arrows 2nil in Kwamashu.Yhoo hamba kahle Dona Dona.But hey let me salute our management for not keeping the unhappy players at the team.

  44. collen says:

    Please don’t get me wrong but it’s time to rebuild the team. We can’t keep on holding to “old horses”. There are youngsters waiting in the wings to contribute to the team’s success.

    To those calling for Rivaldo’s signing, i for one don’t think the boy has what it takes to succeed at Downs. I support the call for Mnyamane(football brains galore there).

    Go well Dona, one of my all-time favourite players at Downs.

  45. zekenine says:

    Gud luck boy…let’s hope u”ll find the team soon

  46. Masogo Mokoena says:

    Masandawana lets accept that at some point in time Teko , Mambush and Surprise were going to leave or retire from being footballers like Liverpool they also let go of Steven”G” Gerald. They will come back as coaches then we will benefit more from their football knowledge.
    I know its painful like letting go of your child to tertiary after having stayed with you for 18 years. Players are there to contribute to the success of their team to a definite period then they have to move to pave way for other younger players.

  47. Evidence says:

    We have Shozi, Mkhulise, Makgalwa, Mukumela & Modise M

  48. Shingirayi Zimunya says:

    Thank you Navigator, Donna Doni, The General, One of this country’s greatest midfielders. You served us well. Go well our Yellow Son. We need to see you soon in our development structures.

  49. Godfather says:

    Always and forever wish you the best of luck . Honestly you where not supposed to leav Downs, but cos Your Manager and Pitso ‘s issues it affect you . I am happy as u know how to settle this issue. Hope Mshishi is next , but life goes on you r the best Dona

  50. simanga hadebe batned says:

    Thank you General, we real appreciate the good work you have done for Kaboyello family, unfortunately you cant be at Sundowns forever, the team need young and fresh legs to keep moving, thank you Teko

  51. Stephen Sandawana Modimolle says:

    SUNDOWNS FC will always be special to Teko cause it’s where he won Championship medals, he played for SSU and won no trophy, went to Pierats won no trophy, all changed when he joined the Mighty Brazilians of Mzansi where he won every domestic trophy except MTN 8,but won the prestigious CAF Champions League and even competed at the Fifa Club World Cup

  52. Romario says:

    Jersey number 10 wow what a player! TEKO we will miss you big time !!! i think we should retire the number 10 jersey, until we find a player as GOOD. . thank you Teko, general, google earth, Modise… the sky is the limit

  53. jimmy says:

    my coach Pitso – Teko the navigator is gone and that is sad and unbelievable can you at least go and get Siphelele Ntshangase then the boy is a marvel to watch and he can fit like a hand to the glove at Sundowns
    please that is a plea you promised to sign some reinforcement and that boy deserves to be at Sundowns

  54. papa wisy says:

    T.Zwane deserves the number 10 jersey

  55. Livy says:

    We thank Teko for contribution made but unfortunately age is not on his side to have regular game time. Sundowns is a big team with big dreams

  56. Peter Mankge says:

    One of the best in SA football. Thank you very much for all your great contribution and loyalty to our team Mamelodi Sundowns. From the bottom of my hear I really appreciate what you did and I wish you the best of luck in your next endeavor. #TheGeneraliSaluteYou

  57. sibusiso mthendeni says:


  58. ITDowns says:

    All the best with your future endeavours. It’s sad to part ways with a player of your calibre. In my mind you rank as one the best MD in the country. The problem with this country is that we don’t value experienced players like in Europe.

  59. Maja says:

    I used to be angry when You, Killer and Pelembe used to have your shorts hanging below your butts in the field, but must say that once you knuckled down to working hard, The Sky became The Limit for you.

    Thank you for the memories abuti, you served us with distinction.

    All the best in your future ventures.


  60. Romario says:

  63. kick boboza says:

    Wish you the best GENERAL.

  64. Sandawana* says:

    I can’t appreciate Teko’s display more than other members have. Like Sapula and Makalakalane we will always hold dearly next to our hearts. Members we comment abt Teko and say nothing abt Mzikayise Mashaba whom I have reliably learnt that he left the team unceremoniously after the game with Baroka and to be seen again.

  65. Skhumbuzo Sibande says:

    Teko, you served us well bra! You are one of the midfielders that the team will always remember. All the best to your future endeavours. I cannot say more than what the rest of the guys have said on this website. All the best man!


  67. Mzimela says:

  68. kick boboza says:

    PLEASE RELEASE MWEENE as well.the man was given chances and failed.

  69. Davis Svosve says:

    You ran a good race
    You will greatly missed.
    Wish u the best.
    Once a Brazilian always a Brazilian!

  70. SOZABILE says:
