“After Laurent, our other captains are Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka.
“I want leaders in the team, every player at every time to have the capacity to show leadership, but these are the five players who have a possibility to be the captain.”
Considering Koscielny’s injury, Petr Cech is most likely to stand in for him when they kickstart their 2018/2019 English Premier League season against defending champions Manchester City at the on Saturday.
