Teko Details How Khoza Told Him He Wasn’t Allowed Too Join Chiefs! In his book that has had football fans talking since it’s release, Modise gets candid about his Orlando Pirates days and how he was told he’d never join Kaizer Chiefs.
Teko reveals how his plans to move overseas were blocked. The book details Teko’s last meeting with Khoza on his Pirates exit.
“The next say Teko arrived for the meeting. He imagined the meeting taking place in a big room with all of South Africa watching and Jazzman‚ his protector‚ by his side. When he arrived‚ there were a couple of people gathered outside the meeting room.
“There were members of the media‚ Orlando Pirates officials and Jazzman. The door of the room opened; Irvin Khoza glanced at Teko and summoned him inside. Teko was hoping Jazzman (his agent) would be invited in too. He was not.
“It was just the Iron Duke‚ Teko Modise‚ and his ridiculous suit‚ which was starting to look like a bad decision now that he was face to face with the most powerful man in South African football.
“And Irvin truly was furious. He told Teko that he was disrespectful and that all of his actions over the past while were wrong. The grilling went on for an hour and the media waited outside.
“… Irvin told Teko that he would release him on one condition: he was not allowed to join Kaizer Chiefs. After that Irvin pushed back his chair and stood up.”
