Teko Modise Calls Time On Illustrious Football Career

Cape Town City midfield maestro Teko Tsholofelo Modise will hang up his soccer boots at the end of the current league campaign, according to his club.

“Going to training today, it was different, even though I use the same route that I take everyday. When I got there I didn’t know whether to laugh, smile or to cry. I always wanted to be a professional footballer, it was the only place where I’m happy and when I started going up and getting recognized, I wanted to be Doctor Khumalo of this era. I knew that one day this day will come and I can say, proudly so, that I have achieved everything that I wanted to achieve as a footballer to hope that in a couple of years from now and someone will be sitting right here and is able to say that they got inspired by my career path,” Modise said on Cape Town City’s official Twitter account.

Modise, whose football career spans close to 20 years, is regarded as one of the finest midfielders to come out of this country in this era.

‘The General’ plied his career for City Pillars, Ria Stars, SuperSport United, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and eventually City where he will bid farewell to the game when the PSL curtains comes down this weekend.

He has lifted the Absa Premiership trophy twice, Telkom Knockout once, Nedbank Cup once and MTN8 trophy once before conquering Africa with Sundowns where they captured both the CAF Champions League and the CAF Super Cup.

The 36-year-old amassed 341 matches, scoring 39 goals with 52 assists.

He also won the COSAFA Cup with Bafana Bafana in 2007, racking up 66 national team appearances with 10 goals.
