The position of Arsenal captain is one which many have taken on and finished the job brilliantly, whereas others have left so much to be desired. It’s usually fraught with hazard as there was a relatively odd correlation between being the Gunners skipper and having a horror damage run or enduring an unsavoury exit from the club.
Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny, William Gallas, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robin van Persie are simply a few of the names who’ve had the damage and nasty exit curse since taking the armband (Cesc Fabregas is an effective shout too).
3 candidates for Arsenal captaincy subsequent season
Aubameyang took the armband for the club however was moved on in the course of the January transfer window final season. That left Lacazette after which Odegaard to put on the armband for the rest of the season, however who’s Mikel Arteta’s alternative heading into subsequent season?
The Scottish left-back is a bonafide captain in each sense of the phrase. Powerful, gritty, not afraid to get down and soiled, and maybe most of all, he possesses all of the management qualities wanted.
Some would possibly say that he’s a little bit younger to be captain of an enormous club like Arsenal, however at 24-years-old, he’s three years older than Cesc Fabregas when the Spaniard took over from William Gallas in 2008.
The tough-as-nails left-back is a fan favorite as usually he’s seen in shorts and a t-shirt throughout coaching whereas others are carrying layers upon layers to maintain heat. As we all know, KT is “constructed totally different” and would symbolize an outstanding option to be the subsequent captain of Arsenal.
