Pitso to decide tomorrow on the new captain

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has expressed that the club will announce their new captain for the upcoming season on Tuesday, a day before their MTN8 clash against Bloemfontein Celtic.


The Brazilians have yet to announce Alje Schut’s successor, after the Dutch defender parted ways with the club at the end of last season.


“The captain will be appointed tomorrow [Tuesday], no I can’t tell you who is the captain [laughs], the team will tell you,” said Mosimane when asked about who will fill the captain’s armband.


‘Downs did, however, a reveal their seven-man captain’s committee, which includes former skipper Teko Modise.


The seven players are:


Teko Modise

Siyanda Zwane

Hlompho Kekana

Surprise Moriri

Kennedy Mweene

Ramahlwe Mphahlele

Thabo Nthethe


Kekana is the favourite to take over from Schut, with Mphahlele tipped as a long term replacement for the former ‘Downs stalwart.
