Bucs Captaincy Conundrum

Orlando Pirates are not short of natural born leaders at Mayfair, in fact, Bucs have some of the best captains in the country - as the players who have taken the captain's armband are seasoned campaigners and know the fabric of the club.

With that said, who is best suited to lead the team looking at the current crop of players?

Oupa Manyisa’s name has been doing the rounds in the media lately and this because of a proposed move to champions Mamelodi Sundowns. Ace has long been one of the best players in the country and after being given the captaincy duties following the death of Senzo Meyiwa, it remains to be seen if he will continue to be the sergeant for the second half of the season.

Lucky Lekgwathi has been the club's long serving captain, however, chances in the first team have been hard to come by for the elder statesman, who has also struggled with injuries this season.

In Lekgwathi’s absence, the likes of Rooi Mahamutsa and Siyabonga Sangweni have picked up the baton in defence for the Sea Robbers.

Sangweni has received the armband on many occasions this season, and has led the troops pretty well when required to do so.  Mahamutsa has also been entrusted with the responsibility and his experience in this regard has helped Pirates whenever he was called upon.

Who do you think should be Bucs captain in the second half of the season?
