Modise took to his official website to speak about how he felt after their 2-1 MTN8 loss to Platinum Stars.

“We could have done better on the day but were unfortunate. It was not our day as it is always hard to fight back when you are chasing the game,” said Modise.

Sundowns kick-off their PSL title defence against Maritzburg United on Friday, August 8 at 20:00.
