Letsholonyane and Modise could face off in the middle of the park in the MTN8 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium tonight (19h00). They’ve been on opposite sides many a time in the past, but they’ve also played together during their time in the Bafana Bafana squad.
Both players are showing that, even in their 30s, they can deliver and keep up with the younger players in the PSL.
“It has been exciting [playing against Modise]. He is one of the top players in the country, even now, and he knows the respect I have for him, it’s out of this world. He’s a true professional, a good footballer and has good football brains. It has been exciting every time I am facing him,” Letsholonyane tells snl24.com/kickoff.
“It’s difficult playing against him. Playing against him is sort of a nightmare because he can do whatever he wants with the ball. He can create space for himself, he can shoot, he can score, he is dangerous with set plays. ”
The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder continues: “It’s difficult to play against him, but we are obviously going there as a team and we are preparing to play against Cape Town City and not individuals. Yes, we have an idea of their individuals and what they can do to hurt us, but we are ready for them.”
Whoever wins the midfield battle tonight has the potential of winning the match for their team.
