Cape Town - Following Mamelodi Sundowns' Nedbank Cup triumph, Teko Modise said he never lost hope that he would win championships with the club after a career filled with near misses.

Modise helped lead the Brazilians to Ke Yona glory after seeing off Ajax Cape Town 4-3 on penalties at the weekend, earning him the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament award during Sunday's PSL gala.

Prior to Saturday's success, the 32-year-old had played in the top flight for eight years with only one Premiership title to show for it, having lifted the league trophy at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

"For me personally it's always nice that we are rewarded especially with the good performances," Modise told Football411.

"Whatever I can win I will try my best to win it. At least we got something to show for, it was very important for us to win the cup final.

"Hopefully next season we will try and win the league. Now we know what we need to do, the consistency as well is important in the game."

Modise has also now set his sights on the MTN8 crown in the early stages of next term, adding: "We will try and win the top eight as well. If we can start with the top eight I think we stand a good chance."

When asked about his aspirations of earning a recall to the Bafana Bafana set up, Modise said: "I still want to play for the national team but again it is not up to me. I want to play for the country; I just want to have that feeling again.

"It's been a while and I just hope that I will get the opportunity even if it is once. But yet again I need to respect the coach as well as his decision."
