Chelsea long-time captain John Terry has joined Aston Villa after departing Chelsea this summer and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is expected to name a new Chelsea captain ahead of the new season.

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill stood in as captain for most games last season as Terry rarely played and many expected the 31-year-old to be named Chelsea’s new captain for the new season.

According to a report on The Sun, 30-year-old David Luiz is being seriously considered for the role of Chelsea’s new captain by Conte.

The Sun claim Conte has been impressed with Luiz’s leadership qualities and, more importantly, his vocal instincts among the players during big matches. Conte is also reportedly impressed with Luiz’s bravery after he soldiered on for the rest of the season with a knee injury having taken a hefty whack from Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in December.

Chelsea Spanish defender Cesar Azpilicueta is also reportedly being considered after he played every minute of every Premier League game last season as Chelsea won the title. Conte reportedly loves his no-nonsense approach to football and his incredible attitude to training.

Which of the three players would you love to see as Chelsea captain?

    Cahil is a man of luck. Stability, luck and commitment to duty are his hallmark. Though his performances game after game are questionable, but he has luck around him.

  2. Let Cahill remain the captain, Luiz assistant captain _ just not to allow commotion happen between players in dress room

  3. Well I think the coach is considering Luiz because invariably Cahill may not be a regular next season considering Conte’s influx of dynamic defenders if he eventually succeeds, besides Cahill is very prone to error. He’s no longer stable easily displaced at a foot glance.

    David Luiz I think would have been the option considering his bravery and leadership skills, but then he’s got his ills. Could sometimes lose concentration thereby resulting to very expensive and unforgivable blunder.

    Aziplicueta could have been a perfect option, but it could breed hatred and communication gap among players in the dressing room.

    Be that as it may, I think you need to have an English spokes person in your team in premiership, that way referees will accord you some respects and even take in your excesses at some point.

    Cahill’s days are gradually winding up and I expect Luiz to step into those shoes and shun critics going forward.
