Arsenal Invincible Ray Parlour played under two of our greatest ever captains in the Premier League era – Tony Adams and Patrick Vieira.
The legendary Gunners midfielder knows what is required to lead our great club, and he has identified one player in our current squad who has all the qualities to become a future Arsenal skipper.
Unai Emery signed Kieran Tierney from Celtic at the start of last season and what a signing he has been. The Scotsman has had his fair share of injuries, but when he is fit, there are not many in the country as good as him.
Parlour has claimed that he really likes Tierney’s attitude. He believes that the former Celtic man always gives his 100 per cent and has boldly said that he could become a future Arsenal skipper when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang eventually moves on.
The Romford Pele said on TalkSport: “I really like his attitude. He turns up every week, you can see the desire when he’s playing, he really wants to win every game.
“He gives 100 per cent and is fantastic down that left hand side. That’s where Arsenal are most dangerous, that’s where the deliveries come from into the box.
“He’s been a brilliant signing, and he’s a really good lad as well; he’s really down to earth. He could probably be the Arsenal captain in the future.”
Arsenal Insider’s view:
Tierney is almost every Arsenal fan’s pick to become our next skipper.
He always gives his all, demands the same from everyone around him and the way he comes across in his post-match interviews shows just how good a leader he is.
Auba will likely stay for at least two more years, if not more. He will keep the armband as long as he is at the club, but once he moves on, Tierney will arguably be the favourite to take over from him.
