Following the announced departure of Oupa Manyisa to Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates will have a new leader in the coming season. But who is good enough to lead the Soweto giants? KickOff.com gives the options.
He’s a player Pirates supporters seem to not want anymore, but he’s worn the armband many a time before and knows what it takes to lead the Buccaneers. Should he get the armband, Jele has to rediscover his form. He has worked under Milutin Sredojevic before, so he would know what the coach expects.
The new man from Chippa United did a good job as skipper at his previous club, but would he want to take on such huge responsibility so early in his Pirates career? Probably not. There would be a lot of pressure on his shoulders if he does. Should it be thrown his way, then his older brother Siyabonga would have valuable advice for him.
He has worn the captain’s armband at Pirates before and he is one of the more experienced players in the team. But his form has not been good over the last year.
Quite a lot of the Pirates supporters believe Mobara has the qualities to be a captain. He talks well in the media and he seems determined to fight for the Orlando Pirates badge. He is one of the few players who give their all on the pitch.
