Mbulula: Bafana 'no bunch of losers'
Orlando Pirates' Senzo Meyiwa has been handed the armband in the absence of Itumeleng Khune after the Kaizer Chiefs number one was ruled out for six weeks due to an ankle injury.
Following South Africa’s goalless draw against Nigeria in front of a 32 432-strong crowd at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday, the 64-year-old Mashaba is still studying his current crop of players in order to decide on the permanent captain.
“So far we are still studying the players - character, behaviour and what they can do,” said Mashaba.
“That is why we going on with Senzo. He’s been doing well. Senzo has been doing well for the past three seasons. He deserves to be there in the absence of Khune - he deserves to take over.”
