Teko “The Navigator” Modise has signed a two-year deal with the Cape side, following a six-year stint with the Brazilians.
“Cape Town City Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Teko Modise. The midfielder adds further quality and depth to the squad, as we prepare to compete both domestically and in the Caf Confederations Cup,” the club announced via Twitter.
“Teko is determined to bring further success to the club, and become part of the story of the boys in blue and gold. CTCFC family, join us in welcoming Teko to his new home in the city of Cape Town.”

The 34-year-old midfielder will now join forces with former Bafana Bafana teammate and newly appointed Cape Town City coach Benni McCarthy next season.
In an opinion piece penned for DESTINY MAN, our sports writer Ebrahim Moolla said that even though Modise was entering the twilight years of his career, he still has a lot to offer and an immense amount of wisdom to share – particularly with one of the smaller football clubs.
“Having spent the majority of his professional career in Gauteng, the idea of showcasing his skills elsewhere must be tempting. At 34, Modise isn’t the midfield general of old, but he could still have a role to play in the PSL,” Moolla wrote.

“The Navigator has already stated that he is planning to retire in two years to concentrate on his business, but one feels he has enough in the tank to turn a game. He would suit a club like Ajax or Golden Arrows, serving as a mentor to their young midfielders in addition to a role as an impact player. At any rate, Modise will want to remind PSL fans of the talents that brought him 51 Bafana caps and just why he is one of the most gifted technicians to have played the game in South Africa before bowing out.”
