Hunt Clarifies Chiefs Captaincy

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has given clarity on who the captain at the club is.

Itumeleng Khune has worn the armband in matches he has played in this season, but he was not handed the responsibility in the club’s 2-1 defeat to AmaZulu on Wednesday, February 17.

“Rama is the captain,” Hunt told the media after the game.

Mphlahlele, who returned from an injury, has been in good form for Amakhosi this season and word reaching the Siya crew is that his deal with the Soweto giants, which expires in June, will be renewed. His current deal has an option to extend.

Khune, meanwhile, has been struggling for form and his error in the clash against AmaZulu led to former Amakhosi striker Lehlohonolo Majoro scoring a winner for Usuthu in the second half.
