CAPE TOWN – Mpho Makola will effectively replace Teko Modise as Cape Town City’s senior citizen and potential midfield talisman after joining the club as a free agent from Orlando Pirates.
The 33-year-old Makola first sprung to prominence at Free State Stars before he signed for Pirates in 2012, going on to spend seven successful seasons with the Buccaneers during which time he became a regular fixture in the Bafana Bafana setup.
"Cape Town City are delighted to announce the signing of South African midfielder Mpho Makola on a two-year deal. Welcome to the Mother City Bibo," the club stated on social media on Tuesday.
And like Modise, Makola is a marketable player and one who should help the club add more numbers to their rapidly-increasing fan base.
