Veteran midfielder Teko Modise has revealed the astonishing truth about how Orlando Pirates boss Irvin Khoza robbed him of an opportunity to play in Europe.

The soccer star said during his time at Pirates, in consecutive seasons, he won the PSL Footballer of the Year award in 2008 and 2009.

He was also named SAFA Footballer of the Year but Khoza prevented him from furthering his promising career in Europe.

Modise added that time he was the only local player playing regularly in the national team. He went to Irvin, who refused to hold meetings with him to discuss his potential move to Europe.

Teko took to twitter to explain his pain and tweeps responded by saying this was not a fair deal.

Khoza’s move not to sign Teko was condemned by Black Twitter.
