Khune a 'natural' leader

Johannesburg - Vladimir Vermezovic has no doubt Itumeleng Khune will thrive as Kaizer Chiefs captain when he makes his return from injury.

The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper has yet to lead Amakhosi since replacing Jimmy Tau in late October, with a reported bout of illness and back problems halting his progress.

Vermezovic is confident Khune, a Glamour Boys youth product, is the right man for the job.

"Some people are born leaders and (Khune) is one of them. I didn't need to tell him anything," Vermezovic told his club's official website.

"He has been in the club for a while and understands the culture and what we want to achieve. He was born to lead and he will do well as a captain."

The 24-year-old Khune hopes to don the armband when third-placed Chiefs resume their title push against bottom club Jomo Cosmos on 15 February.

The Premier Soccer League is currently in recess in respect of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, which runs from 21 January to 12 February.
