Teko’s Next Move: PSL Or Abroad?
Teko Modise’s Next Move: PSL Or Abroad?
Teko Modise officially parted ways with Mamelodi Sundowns yesterday, June 27, as he looks to take the next step of his professional football career. Soccer Laduma takes a look at possible options for The General.
Cape Town City
In issue number 1020 of Soccer Laduma, the Siya crew revealed that Cape Town City could be a possible destination for the player if the club is able to meet his salary demands. The Mother City-based club could look to the 34-year-old as an asset on the field of play, an experienced and leading figure in the dressing room while having the ability to pull a crowd.
The midfielder plied his trade for the Soweto giants before making the move to Masandawana in 2011 and the Buccaneers could come back in for the player’s services as they look to reshuffle and bolster their squad for the new 2017/18 season.
Siphiwe Tshabalala, who turns 33-years-old this year, currently plays in the number 10 role at the Soweto giants and Amakhosi could look to bring in Modise to Naturena and possibly rotate the two players in the position.
Given The General’s age, options abroad for the player could be limited to arguably, North Africa, the Far East, Middle East and possibly China, however, the foreign laws in the Asian country could make it tough for Modise.
On the other hand, it remains to be seen which clubs will look to approach Modise for his services, as it would be an opportunity to land a player of his calibre on a free transfer.
However, with Modise being a free agent, he will be in no rush to make a decision about the next step in his professional career as he is not confined to the July/August transfer window.
