It’s not often a club switches captains midway through the season.
But there are some circumstances in which it becomes a necessity, particularly transfers. And that’s exactly what has happened at Manchester United.
Ashley Young was previously United’s captain, replacing Antonio Valencia before the start of the 2019/20 campaign. But the Englishman is set to leave United this January, with a move to Inter Milan close.
The captaincy has since been passed to one of Young’s current teammates, but do you know who? In fact, can you name every club captain in the Premier League?
Not just the players who simply wear the armband on the pitch – though most on the list do – but those officially recognised as club captain? Test your knowledge below.
