Modise, who became the first black South African footballer to release a book revealed what readers can look forward in his biography: 'The Curse of Teko Modise'.

"This book can be used as an inspiration for young kids," Modise said. "Most black people, we're scared to speak about our struggles so I just want to give others that opportunity by opening up about my trials and tribulations.

"As black people I hope we will start to share our stories, I've started telling mine so I just hope that there will be more that follows."

The former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates midfielder also revealed his future plans after his playing career comes to an end.
