With Itumeleng Khune having returned to Chiefs, the team needs to reconsider giving the armband back to him.
As far as Siphiwe Tshabalala is concerned, his form has somewhat dropped after the return of Itu. The pressure becomes overwhelming when he has to captain the team, with the club's most recent captain being amongst the players he has to lead.
Mentally this must affect him to perform normally as he is still trying to show Itu and others that he can do the job the same as Itu or even better than him.
With Itu's form and performance, which is top-notch, he should be rewarded with the armband. This would enable Shabba to concentrate on his performance and thus elevate his form to the next level as a match-winner.
This would bring positivity amongst the Amakhosi players. For the sake of prosperity for the team, Khune must be given back his deserved armband.
