‘VV’: Meyiwa our captain


Meyiwa took over the armband from Siyabonga Sangweni, who has been the captain in the absence of Lekgwathi.

Meyiwa, who has been the captain for Bafana Bafana as well in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifies, took over the armband from stand-in skipper Siyabonga Sangweni Saturday’s 1-0 win over Free State Stars at Orlando Stadium.


"Senzo is the captain of Bafana Bafana and also, he can be a captain of Orlando Pirates. It was a decision of me and Siyabonga Sangweni to give it to him,” Vermezovic said.

“I think he is a very serious guy, he is the child of Orlando Pirates. He came from the club development and completely deserves to be the captain of the club.

“The truth is, our real captain is Lucky. But Senzo is just behind him. Lucky is the captain but he is not playing at the moment.”
