Teko: I'm not leaving Downs
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns captain Teko Modise has set the record straight regarding his future with the Tshwane club.
According to the Football411.com website, the midfielder joined Downs in January 2011 from Orlando Pirates,
yet has been linked with Kaizer Chiefs amidst talk he has signed a
pre-contract with Amakhosi.
Modise, however, has told Football411 that he will be staying put in Chloorkop.
"Firstly, my contract with Sundowns ends at the end of next
season which means I'm still a Sundowns player until the end of the
2013/14 season," he said.
"That's why I don't understand why people are saying it ends this season."
The 30-year-old has confirmed that he is in fact negotiating a new contract with the Brazilians.
Modise explained: "We are negotiating at the moment because
obviously we have to check now what's going to happen at the end of next
season, but I will still be at Sundowns at least until then because I'm
still contracted to the club.
"Sundowns had an option on my original contract which was for two
more years after the first two so Sundowns took that option last
"So now as I said my contract will expire at the end of 2013/14."
