According to KickOff, Mashaba reveals that the entire squad are captains and that SAFA will continue to build leaders.

“We don't have a captain; up to now we have all been captains,” said Mashaba.

“We have never liked the issue of a permanent captain. We like it to rotate because that's another point that the SAFA Technical Development Plan is trying to address, to build up leaders.”
