Chelsea find ‘new dressing room leader’ in 20-year-old as Thiago Silva fears eased | Football | Sport

Explaining last summer why James had been given the captaincy over Silva, Pochettino said: “I explain the truth like always. For me, it was nominating Reece, I think is the perfect captain of course and then an English player with experience is Chilly.

“And then I think Thiago is because of experience. Today is his birthday, 39, and I think he is an experienced player that doesn’t need the armband and then I think it’s important to build something for the future. Not only the present but the future.

“He is there and the captain is not only to put the armband on your arm. If we need to communicate with the referee and everything I think Conor can perfectly do the job and for me I prefer Conor than Enzo because I think Conor can speak normal English.”
