Khune has been the Glamour Boys captain for several years but due to poor form and injuries, he found himself relegated to the stands more often, losing his spot in the team with both Bernard Parker and Ramahlwe Mphahlele captaining the team.

“If Itu starts, he’s in the starting XI then he will definitely be the captain,” Zwane said at the DStv Premiership launch in Randburg.

“If he’s maybe on the bench, or not part of the team on the day of the game, then we will see who can lead the team.

“But I believe we have assembled a very good team with players who have leadership qualities. We are not worried about that because we will definitely have someone to lead the team if Itu is not available.”

“You look at a player like Keagan Dolly, he has leadership skills.” – Arthur Zwane.

“When you look at a player like Zitha Kwinika, our product… he has those leadership qualities and he was the captain at Stellenbosch.” – Zwane.

“Yusuf Maart, you look at many other players you can mention. The list is long of players who have those leadership skills.” – Zwane.

“You also look at Khama, he can lead.” – Zwane.
