“We all know what he is going through, and we are trying to help him,” Khune was quoted on Sunday World.

“Even the club has provided resources for him by bringing in Dr Henning Gericke, who is a psychologist, just to discover what he is going through on and off the field.

“So, they have been having sessions and you could see that Brandon has changed his way of doing things – he is not himself.

“He is a father, a leader and as the captain of the club, I’m grooming him [to be the future captain] when the legs cannot carry me anymore. I know the armband will be in safe hands,” said the long-serving Kaizer Chiefs captain.
