Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Robson Muchichwa, has said that the club have made the right decision in appointing Itumeleng Khune as captain, because he has the leadership qualities needed for the position.
Khune was announced as the club’s new captain on Thursday, returning to the role he held before Tefu Mashamaite was handed the armband, which was subsequently given to Siphiwe Tshabalala, and Muchichwa believes it has been a smart decision on the club’s behalf.
“For me, I think Khune’s a great player with the leadership qualities that they need,” he told Soccer Laduma. “I think it’s for the best because he talks to the players like he needs to do.”
The 40-year-old went on to say that, even though it would have been difficult to take the armband away from Tshabalala, it ultimately makes sense.
“I do think it’s difficult to take the armband away from Shabba,” he continued. “But if it’s the situation, there’s no problem, because the leadership qualities that Khune brings to the team will ultimately help the players. That’s the important thing, whether the captain has leadership qualities. Khune has shown that he has them in the past.”
