Can Zwane Really Replace Modise?

Teko Modise might be on form for us this season and talk of replacing him would instantly be shrugged off. However, he is a player who may not have the steam in coming years as he is already at an advanced stage of his football career.

With fellow countryman Themba Zwane being touted as a future star in South African football, can he be seen as a replacement for Modise? To a certain extent… yes.

He was praised by former coach Clive Barker as he claimed that Zwane was the best player he ever coached, and we know Barker has been around the block a few times already.

Zwane is temporarily utilised as a left winger, but he is best suited to the number 10 role. Modise is currently the first choice playmaker at the club and with him being in fine form, it may take a while for Zwane to oust Modise from his position.

We know what The Navigator can do, we have seen his quality for years and years in the Absa Premiership, but we are yet to see what special abilities that Zwane offers.

At the age of 25, Modise was already a fan favourite all over the country and became an even better player as his career went on. Zwane does have age on his side and it remains to be seen how he will blossom in South African football.

Could he replace Modise one day?
