Should Khune Reclaim Bafana Armband?

When Itumeleng Khune returned to action for Kaizer Chiefs, he admitted he was happy to see Tefu Mashamaite hold onto the captaincy for as long as Stuart Baxter saw fit, but will it be a similar situation when it comes to Bafana? 

The shot-stopper was controversially left out of Shakes Mashaba’s Africa Cup of Nations squad earlier this year and, as a result, saw his position as the nation’s skipper passed onto Andile Jali and Dean Furman.

The Doncaster Rovers man filled in with excellent leadership duties when called upon during Khune’s absence, but during this international week he will not retain the armband. 

Furman has been allowed to remain in England in order to see out some crucial encounters for his club, while Jali is present in the Bafana camp for the matches against Swaziland and Nigeria, and he will certainly be eyeing the armband along with Itu.

Mashaba, who has played with over a handful of goalkeepers during his reinstatement as Bafana coach, will have a decision to make ahead of tonight’s match against Swaziland. 

Khune will certainly be favourite among the fans, but it is the coach that has the final say… 

Khosi fans, do you think the armband should be given to Khune again?
