The Most Successful Captains In SA: Khune Falls Behind

Dean Furman the most successful PSL captain

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 12, 2017 01:37 PM

Itumeleng Khune is the most experienced captain in the Absa Premiership, but, in terms of trophies, he hasn’t been the most successful.

Khune, The PSL’s Longest Serving Captain

Out of the currently active captains that still don their club’s armbands, Bafana Bafana’s number one has lifted just two trophies as captain. Khune is incredibly decorated as a player, with three league titles to his name, three Nedbank/Absa Cup titles, four Telkom Knockouts and four SAA Super 8/MTN8 titles. However, while donning the captain’s armband, he has won just one Absa Premiership title in the 2012/13 season and a Nedbank Cup in the same campaign.

In fact, it may come as a surprise to many that Dean Furman leads the way in terms of current club captains, with three titles being won under his leadership, including the 2014 Telkom Knockout and two Nedbank Cups in 2016 and 2017, despite having spent just three seasons at the club. Along with Khune, Mamelodi Sundowns captain, Hlompho Kekana has led his team to the CAF Champions League title as well as the CAF Super Cup – although the 2015/16 league title and 2015 Telkom Knockout titles were won while Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who joined Kaizer Chiefs shortly before Downs’ historical continental success.

Bidvest Wits captain, Thulani Hlatshwayo has also won two trophies as captain, in the form of last season’s Absa Premiership and MTN8 titles. Platinum Stars’ Vuyo Mere was also the man to lift the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout title in the space of a few months back in 2013.

Kaizer Irate With Lebese Situation?

With just one title each are the two Cape Town teams’ captains, Travis Graham and Lebogang Manyama, who won the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout titles, respectively.

Other successful captains in recent years are Orlando Pirates’ Luck Lekgwathi, Tefu Mashamaite, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Alje Schut. However, they are no longer active captains and therefore do not qualify for the listing.

 

Who do you think has been the best captain in Mzansi in recent years?
