Raheem Sterling 'Should Ne Named Chelsea Captain' And Can Lead Team To 'Something Very Special'

Raheem Sterling should be named 'Chelsea captain' and can lead the Blues to 'something very special', claims Trevor Sinclair.

Sterling moves to Chelsea having enjoyed seven prolific and trophy-laden seasons at Manchester City.

He helped his old side to four Premier League titles, scoring 131 goals during his glittering time at the club.

The 27-year-old is set to be a big part of Thomas Tuchel's system ahead of the 2022/23 season.

And talkSPORT pundit Sinclair reckons Sterling should go in his new club and become captain.

He believes the experience the forward has amassed in England's top flight should stand him in good stead to become club captain.

"I think Raheem Sterling should go in at Chelsea and become the captain," he said.

"If you look at it, he’s vice-captain of England and the only person who you can say has more experience than him is Thiago Silva and he’s getting on.

"You can’t build your team around someone who might be leaving at the end of the season.

"Everyone looks up to him. You hear young players all the time talking about how Raheem Sterling did this and how he helped them with that.

"I think he could go in and be a great captain for Chelsea. He could lead that team to something very special."

Chelsea failed to bag any silverware last season, but Sinclair has high expectations for Sterling at Stamford Bridge next season.

Cesar Azpilicueta is Chelsea's current captain, but he's on the verge of completing a move away from the club.

Tuchel has experienced members like Thiago Silva and Jorginho in his squad ahead of handing the armband to a new player.

Should Sterling be Chelsea's captain next season? Let us know.
