Teko Modise may have retired from playing at the end of last season, but the Cape Town City man is still as passionate about football as ever.

The former Bafana Bafana international has stepped off the field, and into the offices at City as he begins the next chapter of his career behind the scenes.

Modise says he is very excited about his new role as Executive PRO, and he is looking forward to challenging himself in a different capacity.

While he may not be kicking the ball anymore, Modise says he remains incredibly passionate about the game, and about the club.

The 36-year-old who played for Ria Stars, City Pillars, SuperSport United, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in an illustrious career says he found his home at City, and is proud to be part of such an exciting club.

Modise says he is in a really good place, and says while some players struggle with retirement, he feels he made the right decision to exit on his own terms.
