EPL 2016-17: 5 choices for Manchester City captain this coming season
The EPL 2015-16 season was a disappointing season for Manchester City where they should have cantered to the title with all their title rivals barring Arsenal in either turmoil or in a rebuilding phase. Instead, a flying start to the season was followed by the team stuttering due to form and injuries to key players.
The League Cup victory was more of a consolation rather than an accomplishment given what was expected of Manuel Pellegrini’s team.
However, the much-awaited arrival of Pep Guardiola signals the beginning of a new era for the Manchester club with the fans expecting the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager to propel the club into its Golden Age of sustained domestic and European glory.
This leads to the important question of who would Pep choose to lead the Citizens during his reign. Although it is less likely that Vincent Kompany will be relieved of the armband but due to his persistent injury problems, Pep could easily opt for a multiple captains system as well.
So, we take a look at the 5 likely choices for donning the captain’s armband for the upcoming season (including Kompany).
