Arsenal have confirmed that Robin van Persie will be the new club captain in the wake of Cesc’s departure.
Arsene Wenger told the matchday programme, “Robin van Persie will be captain this season. He is a leader through the way he plays, through his attitude and through his desire to win.
“He’s been at the Club a long time and he’s a technical leader as well. Thomas Vermaelen will assist him, it’s the decision I have made and I’m confident the group will respond to it”.
Robin is the obvious choice but fans will be hoping Arsene Wenger can get help with his ‘Make man captain, sell man’ addiction before it’s too damn late.
