Granit Xhaka Is Arsenal's New Captain by Andersonjr(m): 11:46am On Sep 27, 2019
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has named midfielder Granit Xhaka as the club’s new permanent captain.

Emery informed the squad of his decision this morning, ahead of Monday’s trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Xhaka has led the side in six of their eight games in all competitions this season - but Emery was yet to make final decision.

Emery consulted with the players before relaying the news that Xhaka will take the armband on a full-time basis.

The Swiss international turned 27 today and succeeds Laurent Koscielny, who left Arsenal for Bordeaux in the summer.

Emery is still deliberating over a vice-captain, with forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang understood to be the leading contenders.

Well Deserved!!!

I look at some Arsenal Fans clamouring for a David Luiz that has not used up to 60 days in the club to be the Captain...How do you want others to feel in the team,When a player that just joined the club ousted out those that has been there in leading out the team.

A Good call from Unai!

Bernd Leno,Lacazette or Auba should be the Vice Captain.

Ps: I'm a Barcelona Fan tho

The most uninspiring captain of all times. Atypical example of how a captain ought not to be. Full of red and yellows.

The coach and the entire team should know better but I think Mesut Ozil has contributed more and is more deserving of the captain armband than Xhaka.

This is definitely a poor decision by Emery...... This guy is not fit to be captain judging from the matches he has featured in this season and his impact as a captain in those matches.

imagine the guy opening his mouth to Say the reason we drew against Watford was because we were afraid of them. Watford of all teams..... he definitely have given up before we step on the pitch to play Mancity

Change the centre back pairing to Holding and Luiz, then hand Holding the armband. Simple!
