Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa captained the team in the two opening 2015 Afcon qualifiers against Sudan and Nigeria, but according to Mashaba it appears the armband may be handed to another player for the double header against Congo-Brazzaville.
“We will rotate the captaincy, the reason being that we are trying to make complete players. If we are going to rely on one person as a captain that will give us problems. The question of the captain… we are trying to look at players that can do it,” says Mashaba.
The veteran mentor adds that even if Khune was part of the squad he would have still employed the same policy of alternating the captaincy.
Bafana will play Congo in the coastal city of Pointe-Noire on Saturday before hosting the current Group A leaders in Polokwane on 15 October.
