Teko Modise joins Cape Town City, handed jersey number 13

Teko Modise’s football intelligence and versatility is what drew Cape Town City owner John Comitis to the veteran midfielder.

Modise was unveiled by City on Wednesday after he left Mamelodi Sundowns at the end of last month in the search for more regular game-time.

“For me‚ he is the final piece of the puzzle in terms of competing for silverware next season‚” Comitis said.

“Intelligent footballers are hard to come by and he is certainly one of them.

“Added to that‚ he can step into a number of different positions so he gives us so many options of how to play.

“He can take the pressure off a guy like [Lebogang] Manyama‚ who now maybe does not have to play 30 games in the season.

“We can also‚ if we choose too‚ now push Manyama further forward into more of a striking position‚ because Modise can slot into his current role.

“Also‚ with the recent injury to [Aubrey] Ngoma‚ we wanted to bring in somebody with experience who could maintain that high level in the team which we set last year.

“We need to do this because we want to be in the hunt for the league title‚ that has to be our aim this season.”

Modise has signed a two-year contract and will wear the number 13 jersey at City.
