India regular Syed Rahim Nabi has been named the captain of Mumbai City FC for the tournament. Former Germany international Manuel Friedrich has been named the vice-captain and will serve as Nabi’s deputy.

Coach Peter Reid mentioned Nabi’s leadership and communication skills as traits that led to his appointment as captain – “From the couple of weeks I have worked with the team, I have found him a natural leader, good communicator and a bubbly character within the dressing room. I think Nabi has great experience and knowledge of the game. Manuel Friedrich would be the vice-captain.”

Nabi has been one of the stars of the senior team in recent years and he will look to play a similar role for Mumbai City FC leading from the front as captain.
