Matlaba named new Pirates captain



Absa Premiership side Orlando Pirates have announced defender Thabo Matlaba as captain for the 2017-18 season.

The Tembisa-born full-back takes over the reins as captain after the position was vacated by Oupa Manyisa, who has recently joined Mamelodi Sundowns.

Matlaba, who has been at the club since 2012, will be assisted by Abbubaker Mobara, who has been named as vice-captain.

Some of the most influential captains to wear the armband for the Mighty Buccaneers over the years includes Lucky Lekgwathi (who is arguably the most successful Pirates captain of all time), Ephraim Shakes Mashaba, Innocent Mncwango and Nick Seshweni.
