It only sunk in after receiving my medal – Madisha

Motjeka Madisha has been an instrumental feature in the Mamelodi Sundowns line up for the past three seasons. The 25-year-old centre back has featured in forty-five matches in all competitions for Masandawana this season and scored three goals

Madisha shared what winning the league meant to him, “I was happy but I wasn’t believing that we managed to win it and looking at how things were, it only sunk in after receiving my medal. We managed to protect what was ours and that was a great feeling for me, and to win it again with Mamelodi Sundowns.”

With just one game left in the 2019/20 season calendar, Madisha and the boys will be looking at closing the season on a high. The next battle is the clash against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup final.

“So far so good. The coaches have given us what we need to work on and what we need to improve as a team so we know we’re playing against Celtic. They always give us a tough time. But then we’re ready to fight as a team, ready to win. So I think we’ll see how it goes.”

The Bafana international also mentioned how the Yellow Nation has been with them and said that,“ we really appreciate the support that they’ve been giving us through challenging times. They’ve always been there for us, giving us the support that we needed, even though it was difficult for them to do so. They have been cheering us on. They’ve been doing exceptionally well by being on the street, giving us that moral support. We’re looking forward to the final. They have been giving us the motivation to keep grinding and keep getting the results and the titles that we have won so far, we did it for them. And hopefully, we’ll give them this one as well.”

    Can someone from our team or at least a team manager explain to us the Langerman saga,why are they quite.
    Ace Ncobo said the teams got all the suspended or cautious players three days before the match and to this final the only name that was there on players with four yellow cards was that of Langerman but none at Downs saw that, they are people whom doesn’t do their work properly at our team,just imagine if it was a Champs league trophy we won what will happened after we celebrated.

    Madisha ur a very good nd pacey defenda but then the errors u make r so suicidal 2 say the least, pls dont get me wrong buddy but yor decision-making, focus, concentration and the ability 2 read the game on-point always leaves questions rather than answers! U can b a complete solid defender soon but ull have 2 think smarter than what u giving the team at the moment, work hard nd smart poi! Dnt let over-confidance hit u where the sun dont shine. Weldone boys

      A defender gets better with time. Just continue working hard, everything will fall into place. Making mistakes is part of the game , that should not discourage you. You made flops and took it as a challenge, you have faught a good fight. You stand a chance to contest as a Defender of the year. You played a vey important role in the team.

    Sky is the limit boy, to me you have improved a lot, I like your anticipation and tackles you make, future is bright boy. Bafana Bafana regular place is where you will be in the near future. You can do it.


    You are one of the few best defenders in the league and the best central defender in our team.Your problem is over confidence and putting other defender under pressure by taking too long to pass them.One thing I’ve noticed about you that other people don’t realize is that,you are able to cover others’mistakes whereas they don’t cover yours hence people think you are bad defender.You play very well with Lebusa because you cover each other well.
