Manchester City players vote on their captain group for the new season. The names have already been released:
Kyle Walker, who almost moved away from Manchester City to join Bayern Munich this past summer. But he changed his mind and extended his contract until 2026. He is one of the new leaders.
The England international has captained the team in every game this season. Except for the first Premier League game against Burnley, where Kevin De Bruyne wore the armband. But had to leave the field with an injury.
As usual, Pep Guardiola will wait until the end of the transfer window before every player votes on his group of five captains:
Walker, De Bruyne, Ro. Dre and Ruben Dias were voted into the captaincy list once again. But the surprise is Bernardo Silva.
Guardiola spoke at the weekend about how important Silva is to the group, saying how hard it would be to replace his place in the squad. Walker added to that and suggested that his relationship with the manager could be vital to getting extra days off. ยูฟ่าเบท
Bernardo is another person who almost left the team in the summer. Instead, he signed a new contract until 2026.
Manchester City are preparing to play their first Champions League group stage match against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night.
