The 34-year-old caretaker was Chiefs' commander in the 2020-21 mission yet he didn't play consistently attributable to injury and loss of structure, which implied the armband was turned between Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Samir Nurkovic, and Bernard Parker. 

With Amakhosi set to start off their mission with an away game against TS Galaxy on Sunday, Baxter has uncovered why Khune will keep on conveying the armband in 2021-22 season. 

What did Baxter say? 

"We had a conversation around this a day or two ago and the club chief will be Itu," he told columnists as cited by idiskitimes. 

"Club commander, which means at whatever point he plays he's chief, at whatever point he doesn't play, he's actually club skipper. It doesn't change that he is the voice of the crew and he is the go-to man, presently that won't change."

"Aside from that, we needed a commander for the group; we need all players to assume liability. We need all players to have a voice, we need all players to be adequately certain to help their colleagues," Baxter proceeded. 

"Presently, we're discussing a senior player or a player that has been remarkable or a player that has unmistakably shown administration characteristics. 

"Presently that one, we may see against Mamelodi Sundowns however we need to be a chief full group with individuals that are there to take the pressing factor, are there to assume liability, there to have a voice and try to articulate their thoughts. 

"I think in the event that you get loads of players sufficient, the armband can practically go to anyone." 

Khune is among the players whose agreements were stretched out by the Soweto-goliaths in front of the beginning of the period.
