Looks can be so deceiving, one needs not to take into consideration Khayelihle Shozi and Teko Modise' physical appearance but rather similarities in their style of play.
Shozi has the exact qualities Modise possessed in his heyday. It is not about the number 13 wavering his back nor eight Shozi worn with the Mamelodi Sundowns MDC side. Though Modise has had his chance to don both these numbers at Sundowns and Cape Town City respectively, it is beyond numbers. 'Fire' as Shozi is known among his peers and mates has mastered Modise's traits.
How Fire perfected the short passing game wows many. The duo are skilful and have eyes for pin point passes. With the General having called it a day, Fire can carry the baton to the next generation. Every era needs to have its own star and Shozi has undoubtedly raised his right hand to be counted on.
Everyone is tailored differently but Shozi can become the next Modise.
