PSL football legend Teko Modise has managed to secure a major sponsorship during the trying times of the national lockdown.
Modise, 38, retired from football at the end of the 2018/19 season but his marketability, populairty and lifestyle as a modern professional - on and off the field - has allowed him to transition well.
Currently working as the Executive PRO of Cape Town City, added to his role as an analyst with SuperSport TV, has set him up to maintain his incredible lifestyle football afforded him over the past two decades.
Even through the adversity of the national lockdown and the 'dry' month where the country was unable to access their favourite beverages, Teko has still managed to secure the bag.
Taking to his official social media channels, Modise has showcased his clear affiliation with Heineken South Africa, where he part promoted their non-alcoholic beer while advocating for the social responsibilities during the recent alcohol ban.

Social media influencer
In the era of marketing online, an account with over 100 000 followers can secure as much as R11 000 per post, according to marketing analytics company HypeAuditor.
While Modise has dropped his new partnership on multiple social media platforms, the former Bafana Bafana midfielder is no doubt 'eating nicely' - for a lack of a better expression.
