Fabregas Eyeing Henry's Role

Fabregas Eyeing Henry's Role

Arsenal's young midfield maestro Cesc Fabregas has once again declared his interest in taking over the departed Theirry Henry's role as club captain.

Fabregas has been linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer, with AC Milan, real Madrid and former club Barcelona all reported to have shown an interest in him.

But the 19-year-old Spanish international has committed his future to Arsenal, although he did admit that he would like to return to Barcelona later in his career.

In an interview with Arsenal.com Fabregas was asked if he would like to captain Arsenal to which he replied: 'Of course.

Everybody wants this kind of responsibility and 100 per cent me as well.

It something that I have liked ever since I have been young and it would be no problem for me to be captain of this club.'


However, despite the youngsters interest it is unlikely he will be given such responsibility at such a young age.

However, with Gilberto likely to be given the armband, we could see Cesc being made captain in 2 or 3 years time, when Bert is likely to be shown the door by Arsene Wenger.

Cesc is already vice captain. I would have given it to Toure as captain.

Gilberto won't be shown the door by Wenger. He'll leave Arsenal to play for a brazilian side. And having a captain with limited comitment to the club sounds a bit wierd.11

But when he isnt good enough to play evry week but stays (like freddie) will he still be captain as he is less likely to be left out as captain even when he isnt good enough

:p, I won't deny it. But saying the Captain of The Brazilian Squad Back-To-Back Copa America Champions Against argentina (hehe) will be shown the door by wenger is just wrong.

A captain who gets linked with a Spanish club EVERY summer. No thanks! As much as I love the kid as a baller I need to keep my sanity between June and August at least once in the next ten years!

Whilst I agree with kev regarding the commitment issue, I like the fact that Cesc is a fiery little bugger when he gets going. I like that in a player. For now though, I'd make Kolo vice captain and leave Cesc with something to aspire to. Maybe he'll learn a bit about loyalty and commitment from those two guys, I mean, when do you ever hear about Kolo and Gilberto sounding off in the newspapers or flirting with other clubs. They are both fantastic professionals.

Yep, I'm with iceman here. If he is still around 3-4 years later, and looks likely to be around for longer, then by all means, make him captain. But a lot can happen between now and then.
