Nominees For Sundowns' Next Captain

Mamelodi Sundowns will have to find themselves a new man to sport the captain's armband following the exit of Ramahlwe Mphahlele, but who are the nominees for the role?

"Rama" donned the skipper's band for the duration of the 2015/16 Absa Premiership campaign, and his exit has left the team needing to appoint a third skipper in as many seasons.

Thabo Nthethe is Sundowns legend Phil Masinga's favourite to take over the role, but there are a number of other players who could do so too. 

Denis Onyango has come into his own at Chloorkop, and having an authoritative figure in goal is always good for the structure of a team.

Another possibility is Teko Modise. The midfielder has worn the armband on a number of occasions, and he remains a crucial member of the team.
