Emery reveals who will be the next Arsenal captain
- New Arsenal head coach admits he has an idea of making 5 captains for the team
- But Emery still doesn't know who should it be, however, he respects Laurent Koscielny and reckons he'd be a perfect first captain
"We’ve spoken about that.
"My idea is to know every player and to know, also, the personality of the players. And then, I think my first idea is to have five captains in the team. But at the moment, I don’t know the names.
"I need to know more and also, firstly, Koscielny is the first captain now and for me, I have respect for that.
"Then, we are looking at, looking for, who are the players whose personality is the best in the dressing room. We want to keep the respect for these players and to find the captain and choose very well the best player for that."
Under Arsene Wenger, Germany defender Per Mertesacker has been the Gunners' captain and France defender Laurent Koscielny a vice-captain. But Mertesacker has retired from big football and took up his next role at Arsenal Academy, while Koscielny is now recovering from nasty injury and unfortunately won't be on the pitch until next year.
