Modise, Zidane to share stage

2012-05-01 11:56

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder and South African international, Teko Modise, is set to line-up alongside global legends such as Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho for a charity game in Nigeria.

The Bafana Bafana star has been invited to take part in the game that is being organised in an attempt to raise awareness and raise money for the fight against human trafficking in football.

African legends, such as Didier Drogba, Nwankwo Kanu, Samuel Eto'o, Emmanuel Adebayor, Victor Ikpeba, and Jay Jay Okocha will play alongside Modise, as they join Zidane and Ronaldinho in the game.

Nigeria’s current captain, Joseph Yobo, will also take part in the match although the date for the charity has not yet been announced.

The event, which is part of an annual awards ceremony called the Nigeria Pitch Awards, is organised by Matchmakers Consult International, a sports consultancy and management company.

Shina Philips, the CEO of Matchmakers Consult, explained, "This is magnificent. We are excited at the opportunity to organise a show-stopping Football Awards that will reward persons in all playing positions on the field, as well as officials, players' agents, State Governments and the media."

    Grace has elevated the player, technically he is a falling soccer star.I'm learning that there are set ups in life we can't disputes, the very same soccer player received a Player of the year award, which he never deserved. That's why I go on saying grace saw is seeing and will continue to see him through. Good player

    World Class player, who deserves mentoring and personal coaching to stay focussed. Who go boy, leave these negative rooted South Africans...I mean the world's number one denialists. These are are guys Modise that proclaim SA won't host 2010. History has shovel these worthless mouthpieces to graveyards. Go Modise Go Brother. No one can buy talent.
