Why Balotelli & Zlatan Couldn’t Play In The PSL


Listen to Teko Modise explain why he believes players with big personalities will not be able to play in the PSL by clicking on the podcast player below!

At 39-years-old, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the current leading goal scorer in Serie A. The Swedish striker, who scored 113 goals for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain FC in his time there, looks like he has no plans of slowing down.

Ibrahimovic is well known for his larger-than-life personality, making full use of social media to sing his own praises, often making statements like ‘I can’t help but laugh at how perfect I am,’ and ‘I won’t be the King of Manchester, I will be the God of Manchester.’

On the Carwash, Teko Modise reflects on how players with personalities like Ibrahimovic and Italian striker Mario Balotelli would not get played under a PSL Coach.

The Orlando Pirates legend states, ‘Zlatan is arrogant, but he does the business. Most of the coaches in South Africa can’t handle players with personalities. I [saw] it happening with me and around me. Players are forced to retire not because of their qualities but because the coaches feel intimidated.’

Also on the show, Teko and co-host Sean Roberts discuss Gavin Hunt’s predicament at Kaizer Chiefs and ask the question ‘Is their transfer ban a blessing in disguise?’
