Modise began his professional career at Ria Stars in 2001, but he moved back to the National First Division to join City Pillars a year later after the club was bought out by the PSL.

He then spent four years at Pillars between 2002 and 2006, before SuperSport United came knocking for his signature.

After a series of impressive performances at City Pillars, Modise was transferred to Orlando Pirates and later Mamelodi Sundowns before signing for Cape Town City two seasons ago.

Early life

Modise was born in Meadowlands, South Africa. He is the youngest of three siblings and was raised by his mother in Diepkloof, Soweto.

He was introduced to football as a toddler through his father who was a Kaizer Chiefs supporter, but lost contact with him when he was ten years old.

During his formative years that followed, he played for local amateur sides Coventry and City Rebels before joining Ria Stars at the age of seventeen.

Modise signed for Ria Stars in 1999 after being scouted by former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs defender, Steve Mnguni.

He made his PSL debut two years later in a 1–1 draw with Bidvest Wits on 2 September 2001. It was his only professional campaign with Ria Stars, however, as at the end of the season the club became defunct after being bought out for R8m by the PSL.
