ISL 2017: Top 5 candidates for the captain's armband at Kerala Blasters
The new season of the Indian Super League is just a few days away and fans across the nation are getting excited, as always, to watch their favourite stars play. The opening game of ISL 2017 is the replay of last year's final as the Kerala Blasters take on ATK in Kochi.
The Kerala Blasters have had some fantastic leaders over the last three seasons, with David James, Peter Ramage and Aaron Hughes leading the Yellow Army. The Blasters have reached two finals in the last three editions and will be hoping to get the elusive title win in Season 4.
The Blasters are yet to confirm their captain for this season and with a number of experienced names in their squad, we take a look at who are top candidates for the captain's armband!
#5 CK Vineeth
One of Kerala's local boys, Vineeth is a real fan favourite at the Blasters and has been sensational on the field. His performances have inspired a lot of young players from the state into playing the sport.
He may not have much experience of leading an ISL side but with the support from the fans, who have been called the 12th man of the Kerala Blasters, he can take his side to their first Indian Super League title.
