Hlatshwayo: The Coach Saw Something In Me

Thulani Hlatshwayo Proud To Be Wits Captain

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 03, 2016 04:54 PM

Bidvest Wits defender, Thulani Hlatshwayo, has explained why Gavin Hunt decided to hand him the captain’s armband.

You Choose The Headline

At the start of the new season, Hlatshwayo was made the captain by coach Gavin Hunt and on Saturday he lifted his first trophy for Wits when they won the MTN8 after beating Mamelodi Sundowns. The soft-spoken Bafana Bafana defender has now told journalists that he feels honoured that his coach saw something in him and made him captain.

"You know outside the field of play I am a very quiet person but I am happy that the coach saw something in me and made me captain,” he explained.

Pitso Not Pleased With Wits' Showboating

Hlatshwayo went on to say that the armband has given him extra motivation and that we can expect the Students to bring home more trophies this season.

“That has motivated me to work extra harder and achieve things with the team. This is the first of many trophies which we want to win this season. I am really honoured to captain a team like Wits,” the former Ajax Cape Town defender concluded.

I hope now you have matured enough because we don't wanna see any dangerous tackles from boy and that doesn't mean you're soft. By the way congratulations and all the best in the future. Keep improving as a player and a captain because thats will help Bafana in the long run and again welldone and good luck in the future
