'There's no beef with Teko'

2010-08-20 10:05

Johannesburg - New Orlando Pirates recruit Daine Klate has distanced himself from comments attributed to him lambasting Bucs team-mate Teko Modise.

The duo played together at SuperSport United, before Modise moved to Pirates.

They have now been reunited at Parktown and Klate insists they have a good relationship, despite the fact that the winger was quoted as saying 'The General' "holds on to the ball too much".

Stiga reveals he shares a healthy relationship with Modise despite what was printed recently.

"That was the media writing what they want people to believe," he said.

"I don't comment on other players badly in the media and so that was just the media writing what they want people to read.

"I'm looking forward to playing with him, because he is a great player. I'm here to create goals alongside Teko and hopefully we will help Pirates end the drought."

    well done Dronkie; my memory also says the nickame 'Stiga' is reserved for Stanton Fredericks. [When did Klate become Stiga also]. Nonetheless, I like the guy [Klate] and I hope he does well at Pirates [this from a Chiefs fan with a bigger picture in mind]

    I believe the news papers are spot on, Klate has a problem with Teko, remember he once said, If you want to see frustration you should look at Steven pienaar's face. This he said while being interviewed about Teko/Pienaar combination during the world cup tournament. Watch this space.

    If that was his comment, then he's spot on. Coz Teko the "General"(what a joke) does hold on to the ball for too long. Coz by the time he passes the ball, the attacking opportunity has already passed.

    Daine you have no problem as Teko is a bench warmer (whole season) well done Daine

  • LETONA - 2010-08-20 13:31

    I dont support the government 4 silencing the MEDIA,having said that got a problem with our media.Most of the time they report NEGATIVELY,they report on issues they are not sure of hence they dont say MAYBE.Some reporters destroy instead of building the nation.It is tooooooo early for reporters 2 tell us about Klate and Teko relationship.Give Teko a peace of mind,he will sooner bounce back.Most of our reporters are carrier of BAD NEWS and it is time for them to change BUCS Play Santos,otherwise monday they gonna tell us that Klate or Modise did not pass the 2 one another 'cause of the relationship.Dont divide our players,please unify them.We looking forward to beat Santos on sunday,don't make our players 2 loose concentration.ONCE A PIRATES ALWAYS A BAKASHUSHU....

    You are right Klate, that is Modise's only weakness: to hold on the ball for too long. Maybe he will listen when he get critised by his team mates. Modise is a good player only if he release the ball quik. You spot on Klate dont retreat

    In any situation, be it at work, church or wherever it is called professional etiqutte not to discuss a colleague's shortcomings with other people - plain and simple.I do not believe for the life of me that the comments came from Stiga.

  • jerry mthembu - 2010-08-20 16:14

    People can say anything they like about our super star Teko Modise,i know the combination with Daine will be marvel to watch.Once a pirate always a pirate"up the bucs"

  • mondli - 2010-08-21 00:23

    you are spot on dainie, the so called general should learn to be a team player and not over elaborate on the ball. the general is a drawback.

  • WIRI - 2010-08-23 11:40

    Its very sad to note that the same culprits who brought Teko into the limelight are the same guys who are now reporting negatively about him. Teko is gonna make an incredible come this space
