Teko Modise has revealed which coach had the biggest influence on his professional football career.
Modise retired from professional football this month, after his last season in the colours of Cape Town City.
The 36-year-old will however, remain with the Citizens on the technical and managerial side of things at the club although his official role is yet to be confirmed.
Speaking to the media before City’s annual awards ceremony, Modise shared what has been the best season in his playing days and which coach had the biggest influence on him during his professional career.
“My best season was my last season at (Pietersburg Pillars) before I got signed by any other team and won the Footballer Of The Season I think that was my best, best season. My best game… (Cameroon in Rustenburg), the national team, I even forgot about that, Benni was playing,” Modise told the media.
“The role, I think once we are done discussing so many things within the team, there will be more clarity and you guys will know exactly what I will be doing.
“Carlos Parreira, he changed how I looked at football, for me football was just fun and games until I went to the national team and he had a one on one with me and until today I still remember exactly what he said, so he changed everything about me,” he added.
