Junior Khanye has had a lot to say about Orlando Pirates captain Thulani "Tyson" Hlatshwayo. The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder blamed the Bucs' defeat on Mamelodi Sundowns' Hlatshwayo while speaking at a recent interview.
Pirates faced Sundowns over the weekend and conceded a goal by Brian Mandela. Sundowns are currently at the top of the PSL log while Pirates are sitting comfortably at the number five position with just 13 points.
Hlatshwayo didn't have the best of games on 2 January, making many unnecessary fouls, one of which led to Mandela's goal.
"Probably, his contract with Pirates states that he must be the captain, for what? I don't understand. I know that he is not comfortable with the ball at his feet."
