I think this is very important. Hendo is club captain. Wearing the armband and leading out the side is only a tiny part of that. And whomever is chosen to wear the armband on a given day has no bearing on what license each other player for fixing stuff on the pitch they observe needs to be fixed. VVD isn't going to decline the responsibility of organizing the defensive line at a free kick just because Hendo has the arm band any more than he is going to do it better just because he is wearing it. The armband has no bearing at all on those things.Why? Kehl was Klopps captain for years and he wasn’t an automatic starter. People think of club captain far too myopian, its a far reaching role.
