Mashaba deciding on new Bafana captain

Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba, will be revealing his team’s new captain ahead of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying match against Sudan at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Mashaba will be replacing his previous captain, Senzo Meyiwa, who was shot and killed at the home of his Afro-pop singer girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, on the 26th of October.

"That will definitely come between Thursday and Friday and we will definitely let you [the media] know," Mashaba said.

He also added that choosing a new captain is easy, as the most important thing for the team is the starting 14, who will be playing the actual match.

"That is why in this team we make sure that on Friday we announce the squad that will play on Saturday.

"We do everything once and for all and we sleep. We can do it [now] but there is a lot that can happen in between and we don't want to be chopping and changing. We will definitely give you the captain on Friday."
