Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane
has hinted that defender Mosa Lebusa may be the long-term successor to
Hlompho Kekana as club captain.
Lebusa has worn the armband in recent weeks in the injury-enforced
absence of Hlompho Kekana. And the former Ajax Cape Town defender, who
captained the Urban Warriors at a relatively young age, has stepped up
to the plate with aplomb.
With Kekana 34 and set to retire in the next season or two,
27-year-old Lebusa has been linked with becoming the next Sundowns
skipper on a permanent basis and Mosimane has fuelled the speculation by
talking up Lebusa's leadership qualities.
"I'm not saying Lebusa is the next captain. I’m just saying he
has got the ability and we’ve got a lot of captains at the club," the
Masandawana mentor told KickOff.
"He was the skipper at Ajax [Cape Town] for a very long time. He has
got the mental strength and the right attitude. He is a good boy and
"Captains are not only chosen because you are a good footballer. It
is a guy who should carry the team, players should give respect to him.
Mosa has done it and why not."
