Not solely do we’ve a summer season squad rebuild to start out underneath new possession, we even have a reasonably large determination to ensure we get proper for the way forward for the membership.
If Cesar Azpilicueta leaves as is what is predicted this summer season, then the membership wants a brand new everlasting captain. Naturally, Jorginho takes the reigns being vice already, and if he stays, that’s what I’d anticipate to occur after which one of many under gamers step up as the brand new vice. So, I included Jorginho within the ballot at this time for that cause, however there may be each probability that he nonetheless leaves this summer season.
I wished to gauge opinion from Blues followers so I requested who they wish to see develop into the subsequent membership captain on a everlasting foundation after Azpilicueta, and the solutions have been largely fairly clear.
Thiago Silva was the preferred choice with 43% of the votes. Subsequent up was Reece James with 24% of the votes, adopted by Jorginho and Mason Mount, who each acquired 17% of the votes. These votes have been out of 10,000 plus voters, so it’s a great indication of what Blues followers wish to see.
If Azpi leaves, who you handing captaincy to this summer season?

It might be Thiago Silva for me for the subsequent one or two seasons if Jorginho leaves, and I’d choose Mason Mount or Reece James as vice-captain for now. I can not select between the 2, however I’d make certainly one of them vice till Silva leaves simply to get the captaincy expertise with out the actual strain of being the membership captain. I feel this is able to be a pleasant and pure development.
