Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise says he is willing to be patient as he tries to reclaim a starting berth for the Tshwane giants.

The former Bafana Bafana midfield maestro has been a key performer for 'Downs over the past few years and has also captained the team.

Modise has not started for the Brazilians' in their last four league matches, but explained to the Sowetan Live that injuries and illness have kept him sidelined.

"Honestly, I was out of the team because I was sick. I had to wait in line and then I got a hamstring injury while waiting. So I had to recover from that," said the former Pirates man.

The 33-year-old has watched from the outside as Sundowns have reclaimed their spot at the top of the PSL standings, but says he is fully supportive of his team-mates out on the park.

"I have to support the team whether I'm playing or not," added Modise. "Sundowns have always been a team with quality players in the position that you play.

"I can say the same about last season and the seasons before. So for me right now it is to be patient.

"We are brothers at Sundowns irrespective of who is playing. We've built that kind of environment. So we don't see each other as opponents or enemies."

Pitso Mosimane's side are next in action when they face SuperSport United in a Pretoria derby on Saturday.
