Once upon a time, South African football was blessed with two gifted midfielders in Teko Modise and Siphiwe Tshabalala.
Modise bossed the midfield at SuperSport United, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City in the PSL.
‘Shabba’, as Tshabalala is famously known, played for Kaizer Chiefs for over a decade after being signed from Free State Stars.
The two Soweto-born legends were opponents at club level but they were teammates at national team level with Bafana Bafana.
SUNDOWNS STAR THAPELO MORENA PICKS HIS ‘SUPERSTAR’ BETWEEN TEKO AND SHABBA
Now, speaking to iDiski TV, Sundowns star Thapelo Morena was asked who his biggest superstar was between Modise and Shabba.
And before coming up with his answer, Morena admitted it was difficult to choose between the two Bafana Bafana legends.
Nonetheless, he picked Modise as his ‘biggest superstar’, saying the Meadowlands-born legend had more in him as a player to what Shabba did.
“It’s a difficult one but I will go with what I prefer; flair, creativity, scoring goals… Shabba used to score goals… he had flair but Donna (Modise) had more. So, I will go with Donna,” said Morena.
