Arsenal has been under a crisis as they currently lack players who are captains material for the team after their previous captain Aubameyang seemed to have run out of favours with the Gunner boss, Mikel Arteta.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang will most probably make a move from Arsenal this January after the Gabonese striker has repeatedly denied to not sign a new contract with the Gunners and Mikel Arteta has decided to keep him out of the squad for the past few matches.
The absence of the striker is not a problem for Arsenal currently as they have won their last 4 matches back to back after Aubameyang was dropped from the squad. The only question that Mikel Arteta has on his mind will be regarding the captaincy of the Gunners.
Ben White has grown as a Gunner and is prepared to take the Captaincy when the time comes
Ben White the 24-year-old centre back for Arsenal is one of the leading choices for the captaincy alongside Aaron Ramsdale. Both of the players are young and has not even completed a season for the Gunners.
Ben White in the recent interview with talksport when asked about being the captain of Arsenal said, “I’ve never done it before, but it would obviously be an absolute honour to be captain.”
“I think I’ve got some of the qualities to be captain, but we’ll see in time.”
Arsenal will be taking on Norwich City for their boxing day clash in the Premier League on 26th of December, 8:30pm (IST). Mikel Arteta has come a long way through his 2021/22 journey after he started the season with back to back disappointments on the way.
The Gunners are currently at the fourth place in the points table and Mikel Arteta with his team of young blood is all set to make an impact in the Premier League this season.
