'Matlaba Responds With A Positive Attitude'

The season is fast approaching, and each team needs a captain to lead them into battle. Today we hear from a supporter who explains what he thinks is expected of a skipper, and gives his views on the one of the captains chosen by Orlando Pirates head coach Muhsin Ertugral.

"The player who has the character of Lekgwathi. The player who never stops fighting for the team to win, even when the team spirit isn't there. The player whose form never decreases. That player is Thabo Matlaba. Matlaba never asks when to play, where to play, how can I play. He always responds with a positive attitude. Whether the whole of Pirates is down or not, he always remains on top," Soccer Laduma website reader Alberthm said.

"He always fights for a win, even when the mood is not good. Put Matlaba in front, and all will be well. The kind of captain that is not the type who is only vocal verbally, but the kind of captain that is a hard worker.

"A player who shows by will and deed how work is done. Remember, Lucky always forced his way forward to score, even Andile Jali would encourage him and assure him of cover. So, players who always multiply themselves to create something out of nothing, they are the one to consider first before deciding otherwise."

Do you agree with this supporter? Who is the best leader at Pirates?
