Despite having retired from professional football, Teko Modise is set to remain with Cape Town City.
The 36-year-old announced his retirement from the beautiful game this month, after spending more than 10 years in South Africa’s top-flight.
After his seeing his stay with Mamelodi Sundowns come to an end at the end of the 2016/17 season, Modise joined City for the final two years of his professional football career.
The player lifted his final piece of silverware with City last year, when the Mother City-based club clinched the MTN8 tropy.
However, despite having since announced his retirement from professional football, City have confirmed that Modise will remain at the club.
“Teko has made it very clear, the areas he wants to be involved in (at the club) and we have already worked out some kind of plan, we have a commitment with Teko apart from the fact that a testimonial will be superb to see something like that, it doesn’t normally happen in this country. But between the fans, the politician that he can be in the correct boardrooms, between the influences he can have with sponsors, to advise, it has to be a massive input he could make to a club like ours. We are going to pioneer this and we think we made the right decision to continue with Teko,” Chairman John Comitis confirmed last week.
