Arsenal boss, Unai Emery says he’s waiting until his squad is finalised before he decides precisely who is going to be in his group of five captains.
The former Valencia coach reveals three names at his press conference ahead of Sunday’s Premier League opener with Newcastle but with the potential for further departures, the Gunners head coach is delaying his final selection as one or more of those players could leave the club.
“As you can understand, we are changing players at the last moment and also with Laurent Koscielny, he was the first captain, and he left us five days ago,” said Emery. “Also, we have had other players come in. Now we have the squad and we have finished the transfer market, but it’s still open in other countries.
“Unfortunately, although we could achieve the [signing of] some players, now in the next 25 days we could lose some players. It’s the reason I want to close my squad clearly [before I decide my captains].
“At the moment we have three captains: Xhaka, Mesut and Nacho, and I want to take two more because my opinion is the same as it was in the pre-season with five. I want to be with my squad clearly to have two more. At the moment we have three captains and I think they have the capacity to give us possibilities as captain.”
