I think far too much weight is placed on it. KdB would be good for approaching the ref to discuss decisions. Apart from that I don't see the point in getting over excited. A leader is a leader regardless of an armband.
When I think back to 2012 you could have easily have picked Hart, Zaba, Kompany, Yaya, De Jong, Barry as captain. All had leadership qualities or varying kids.
Fast forward to now and honestly we don't really have any stand out options. Kompany was an amazing captain because he was physically imposing, aggressive, vocal and let's face it he had that ability to pull the team up. United away, the Leicester goal and even getting the team through against Liverpool. I don't see any of our team as able to do that. Of course he is irreplaceable but we need someone of that ability. I hope Koulibaly can provide that.
We desperately need more potential captains in the team. Our spine needs to have 2 or 3 clear options.
