AC Milan are thinking about giving Simon Kjaer the captain’s arm band ahead of next season should Alessio Romagnoli leave, a report claims.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) writes how Kjaer became a protagonist for what he did during the frightening moments after Christian Eriksen collapsed, which gave rise to the hashtag #KjaerCapitano and could now become a reality.
It is true that you don’t need an armband to be a leader and captain and Kjaer leads by example with his performances as well as his conduct, but Milan could soon find themselves having to choose a new captain given Alessio Romagnoli’s future is uncertain and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to lead.
At the beginning of preseason, scheduled for 8 July, the team will discuss the issue and Kjaer could make everyone agree given the opinion of the fans and that of his team-mates will hardly be different. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a contender too, as are Franck Kessie and Davide Calabria.
