The news has finally emerged. Following the departure of Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Mamelodi Sundowns have a new captain – Hlompho Kekana. The question is: Is this what the supporters wanted?
Many have taken the opportunity to congratulate Bra Hlompho on the achievement.
"You deserve that armband bra kk, may you lead the boys to the shining star and all the best" – deadlydowns
However, there are many others who are debating whether there was someone better suited to the job, with the big name that comes to mind being that of Thabo Nthethe.
"Kekana should be Nthethe's vice captain... that's too much to dispute Nthethe twice from captaining Sundowns, especially for a 31-year-old to a 30-year-old... at least Rama was young and that was understandable... but I hope the armband doesn't disturb Keke like it did with Modise. All in all, congrats bra Hlompho." – levy madibana
"Keke is the senior, no doubt about that, but as for the captaincy I don't think he could be that great! Nthethe is suitable and possesses great skills of leadership, whom I think is a born leader. But it's my duty to support every decision taken by the technical team and all the best for 'Gonzalez', and congrats as well buddy! Amasandawana!" – mtho#7ven#downs
And then there are those supporters with a more balanced view who see that you cannot please everybody.
"People will always vary when it comes to opinions. I wonder what qualities are needed from a player to be named a team's captain. For me, Bra Hlompho is the perfect man for leading the Team. #DTC" – Thokozani_Shezi
Would you prefer to see the armband on Kekana or Nthethe?
