'Pirates Need A Vocal Captain'

What does it take to be a captain? Moreover, what does it take to lead one of the bigger clubs in the country? What qualities are needed? Some will say your best player needs to be your captain, some will say that it should be the most capped, and some say it should be the goalkeeper. What does this all mean for Orlando Pirates as they head into the new season?

Few South African supporters would say that the captain's armband should be wrapped around any shoulder other than Oupa Manyisa's. However, some have said that the strongest quality they want to see in their Bucs captain is simple: being vocal and inspiring.

"Manyisa is a good player but not a leader as he's too quiet. We need someone who's more vocal to encourage the troops." – tee'buc

"Pirates really do not have vocal players. Having said that, I think Gyimah can lead us because he is a fighter and by virtue of that he is a charismatic leader. It's really hard to say who can lead, but so long as we have a captain nje, I will support him!" – makatsela

"Why not give it to Ayanda Gcaba? He seems the most vocal in that backline. He takes no prisoners in battle. He is starting to come into his own as a central defender." – Sapula

So the big question is: which player will be able to inspire the Bucs troops the most?

If a leader is defined by how vocal he is, then who is the most vocal Pirates player?
