Premier League Captains Ranked From 'Shouldn't Be Captain' To 'Captain, Leader, Legend'
A football fan has ranked Premier League skippers past and present from 'Shouldn't be captain' right through to 'Captain, Leader, Legend.
The list, made by George on 'Tiermaker', sees legendary captains such as Roy Keane, Tony Adams, Vincent Kompany, Steven Gerrard, John Terry and Steve Bruce all on the highest possible level after guiding their respective sides to glory.
Rather controversially former Arsenal skipper Patrick Vieira is a step below in the 'Hero' category, along with the likes of Alan Shearer, Nemanja Vidic, Gary Neville and Mark Noble.
