Teko Modise believes he is the best player in South Africa

According to the clip, the Masandawana brand ambassador says he used to earn peanuts at Ria Stars and got an improved offer at City Pillars. At Stars, he was paid R2 000 a month but he was left with a mere R100 after paying for his living costs, and earned an improved contract of R14 000 at Pillars. He said:

“I remember at Ria Stars my first paycheck was R2 000. We were staying at a complex where I needed to pay R1 600 rent. So I’m left with R400 and from that money I had to pay a cellphone contract of R300 so I was left with R100. After that, I came to the PSL. Imagine from R100 and City Pillars offered me R14 000 and I signed.”

Social media users reacted to the trending video and Briefly News selects a few interesting comments from the viral clip. He also said:

"In my generation, I think I was the best footballer because I won every single individual award. I was playing for a big club in the country and I had to understand every club has its own rituals. It was not a regular type of a thing at Orlando Pirates. It was scary for me because it was something new.”
