Curse of Teko Modise
|Ships in 7 to 8 working days|
For too long now the world of South African football and the world of books have been kept apart. As soon as a local sports book hits the shelves, we go out in droves, buying them in the thousands as proof of our patriotism and loyalty towards our sports hero. Yet, it seems it is only the rugby and cricket players that are given such esteem.
This year Jacana Media is proud to give football fans a chance to honour and celebrate one of their own heroes â€“ Teko â€˜the Generalâ€™ Modise â€“ easily one of the best footballers South Africa has ever produced. At the height of his career, Modise was playing for Orlando Pirates, driving an Aston Martin and about to make history in the 2010 FIFA World Cup representing South Africa.
The Curse of Teko Modise marks a new era for local sports biographies. Not just an account of historical facts, this is the story of a boy, a nation and the fans of the beautiful game going for their dreams. Detailing his fantastic career, the book also gives readers insight into the shy mid-fielderâ€™s personal life, which is sometimes stranger than fiction.
On the football field, Tekoâ€™s contribution, class and character will always be memorable. Teko Modise slowly changed from being just another talented young footballer to becoming an iconic and colossal brand and he did it all with guts and determination and by standing on his own two feet. They just donâ€™t make footballers like Teko anymore.
