Teko ‘the General’ Modise is one of the best footballers South Africa has ever produced. But life wasn’t always kind. At eight years old, Teko was kicked out of his home for the very thing that would catapult him to stardom – football. This story tells it all, from poverty to fame, from love to divorce. A fatherless father trying to make sense of parenthood and a man who never had money trying to make sense of an abundance of wealth and the evils it brings, all the while maintaining his status as the greatest South African footballer of the modern era.
