On their official Facebook page, the club have named Atlético’s four captains for this season.
Antonio López will continue to serve as the club’s top skipper, while Luis Perea, Álvaro Domínguez and Gabi were appointed as vice-captains.
With the departures of Simão, Sergio Agüero and Diego Forlán, the team lost three of its leading players, but with three canteranos and Atleti’s longest serving foreigner, we’re certain the armband will be in good care.
The appointment of Gabi may come as a surprise considering the midfielder only joined this summer, but the Atleti youth product is only one game shy of his 60th league appearance and was an outstanding capitán for Real Zaragoza in the past years.
The four have a combined total of 530 games for Atlético between them.
Do you agree with the players that were picked to represent our team this season, or would you rather have seen someone else handed this responsibility?
