Soccer; it's more than just a game, it's a way of life for millions of South Africans. For former South African favourite Teko Modise; it is life itself. The fallen star was given a second chance by popular football club Mamelodi Sundowns under the coaching of Johan Neeskens. Neeskens, who took a risk on Teko when many doubted him after two years of rough games, belived in him so much that he made him captain of the squad. Since January 2012, Teko has redeemed himself on and off of the field. He says: "“Sundowns took a risk buying me and the only way to repay them is not by going to the office and shaking their hands, but to do well in the pitch and that was one thing I always wanted to do,”
