The puzzle about the Arsenal captain this season has finally been answered. The coach, Unai Emery, has mentioned five names that will be the leaders of the Gunners in the field.

Emery had actually promised the names of the captains chosen a few weeks earlier. But he postponed it until Arsenal finished facing Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday (9/25/2019).

The method used by the former PSG coach can be said to be different. As stated by one of his staff, Rob Holding, Emery allowed the players to choose captains using a closed voting system.

“[We are required to] write down the name and give it to the coach. He will look carefully at the input from him and we will see what will happen,” Holding said as quoted by Goal International.

Five Arsenal Captains

Although not yet mentioned the name, it does not mean that Arsenal appear without a captain in several games that have passed this season. Granite Xhaka is always given that role when it is revealed.

When the Swiss player was absent, Emery appointed Mesut Ozil as Arsenal’s captain. This was seen when Arsenal faced Nottingham Forest. When Ozil was replaced, the armband was given to Rob Holding.

After waiting long enough, Arsenal finally had a permanent captain. Emery appointed five names, and Granite Xhaka was named the main captain, followed by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Hector Bellerin, Alexandre Lacazette, and Mesut Ozil.

“Xhaka is an adult [and] has experience. In the dressing room, the players choose him first for the leader,” Emery said as quoted by Goal International.
