Cape Town City midfielder Teko Modise says helping the team win the PSL title is what lured him to the club despite purported interest from Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

“I really like what I see here. I believe we can finish higher than last season. Can we win the league? Nothing is impossible.

“That’s our goal- winning the league. That’s why I joined City, as they have the potential,” Modise told Daily Sun.

He helped Downs win the league title (twice), Telkom Knockout, Nedbank Cup, Caf Champions League as well as Caf Super Cup trophies during his six-year stay.

The 34-year-old believes he made the right choice as he will play under his former Bafana Bafana teammate Benni McCarthy, who replaced Eric Tinkler as City coach.

“I’ve made the right choice. I chose City because they are an ambitious club with an ambitious chairman in John Comitis," he added..

 “I can’t wait to be part of new head coach Benni McCarthy’s side when we kickoff our new campaign next month.

To play with current Bafana international Ayanda Patosi and captain Lebogang Manyama also excites Modise.

“Ayanda has a lot of talent. He is a class player, good technically and I’m going to help him all I can. I’m looking forward to playing with him,” Modise continued.

“Lebo is already a star. It’s going be brilliant alongside him. There are so many good players here. That’s another reason why I’m here,” he concluded.

City finished third inthe league last season, narrowly missing out on the title to Bidvest Wits, but they ended the campaign with a piece of silverware in the Telkom Knockout.
