Pep Guardiola expects Man City players to elect Kevin De Bruyne as next captain

Pep Guardiola has revealed he expects Kevin De Bruyne to be Manchester City’s next captain – but insists he has no say in the matter himself.

Since the departure of Vincent Kompany three years ago, City manager Guardiola has allowed his squad to elect their own skipper.

The armband was taken by David Silva for the 2019-20 campaign with Fernandinho having taken the role for the past two seasons.

With the veteran Brazilian midfielder having left the Etihad Stadium over the summer, a new leader now needs to be chosen.
