Granit Xhaka Is 'The Leading Candidate' To Replace Laurent Koscielny As Arsenal Captain

Granit Xhaka Is 'The Leading Candidate' To Replace Laurent Koscielny As Arsenal Captain

Arsenal fans have not reacted well to Granit Xhaka becoming the leading candidate to replace Laurent Koscielny as club captain.

Koscielny refused to attend the club's pre-season tour of the United States and, as a result, he's set to be stripped of the captaincy with reports claiming that Xhaka is in pole position to replace the Frenchman as Arsenal skipper.

The 26-year-old captained Arsenal for a few games last season, and he previously wore the armband at Borussia Monchengladbach not to mention Switzerland on the international scene.

But the news hasn't gone down well with some Arsenal supporters who've vented their frustration on social media.

Xhaka has described the potential of captaining Arsenal on a full-time basis as "something special".

"It is not about the armband," the no-nonsense midfielder said.

"We have to work well together on the pitch, out of the pitch and we have to work together, all of the players.

"If the club and the coach gives me the armband I will be happy of course. I will be very happy because it is something special. But it's not my first time because I have been the captain here, I was before in Germany and the national team as well.

"Our leadership improved last season but this is not something you can change in one day. You need time and in my opinion we are on a good way to create something special in the team as well."

Is Xhaka the right man to captain Arsenal for the new season? Let us know what you think.
