Emery confirms midfielder Xhaka would be Arsenal captain on permanent basis

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery confirmed on Friday that midfielder Xhaka would be the team's captain on a permanent basis, Metro reported

“Granit Xhaka started off captain but he’s not a foregone conclusion to start every week. So I’ll tell you someone who should be – David Luiz. And that’s why he should be captain. Not as one of five either, but on his own. People look at his mistakes when they should be looking at what he’s won. The guy is a serial winner. Yes, he’s either a nine out of ten or a four out of ten every week. But he never hides whatever happens. I like that. That’s leading by example,” he said.

According to him, he always comes across well and he was always a good influence on the young players at Chelsea as he was a leader there.
