Comitis open to Modise arrival

Cape Town City owner John Comitis says he will fully support the signing of Teko Modise if head coach Benni McCarthy wants to add the veteran playmaker to the squad.

Modise, 33, is currently a free agent after a decorated six-year spell at Mamelodi Sundowns, winning every domestic honour on offer, along with the CAF Champions League and the CAF Super Cup.

Despite entering the twilight of his career, Modise is still considered one of the most technically gifted midfielders in the Premiership and his decision to leave Masandawana was due to the former Bafana Bafana star seeking more regular game-time, which manager Pitso Mosimane was not able to guarantee.

Nonetheless, Comitis revealed that McCarthy is still in the process of assessing his current playing squad and will decide whether or not there is a position to accommodate the former Orlando Pirates man.

“There are a number of players that Benni has not worked with before and he needs two weeks to train with the players. He will let us know which players he needs,” he told Isolezwe.

“If he wants to sign Teko Modise, we will support him by having him at the club. For now, he hasn’t said anything about signing him.”

Since making his Premiership debut for SuperSport United in 2006, Modise has racked up 257 Premiership appearances, scoring 34 goals and registering 44 assists.
