Who is Man City club captain 2021?- Pep Guardiola makes up his mind

Manchester City are one of the biggest clubs in Europe. And they have been for nearly a decade, ever since they won their first Premier League title in 2012. Much of that success was down to Vincent Kompany’s role as a team leader.

The Belgian stalwart joined from Anderlecht and gradually established himself as one of the biggest leaders on the pitch. But ever since he left around half a decade back, there is a void he left which has been tough to help. So, who is Man City club captain 2021? Let’s find out.

Who is Man City club captain 2021- Ruben Dias vs Ilkay Gundogan debate

It is clear that a hierarchy has been established. Whenever Ilkay Gundogan is playing, he is the captain on the field. The German midfielder brought in from Borussia Dortmund and has become a big figure in City’s midfield over the past several years.

He is definitely not the most vocal on the pitch but his tactical understanding of the game makes him an astute leader. When Gundogan is out, Portuguese defender Ruben Dias takes over the captain’s armband- a peculiar site considering the defender’s lack of experience in a leadership role in the past.

Fernandinho is by no means a regular starter with Rodri now a fixed player in the number 6 role. But whenever the 36-year-old Brazilian is playing, he takes over the captain’s armband. Kevin de Bruyne has also captained the club this season in the absence of the three aforementioned players.

It’s not a very fixed and clear layout at the Etihad with regards to who their club captain is. It’s not as clear as Manchester United or Liverpool, where Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson are undisputed leaders. But for Man City, this seems to be working and their trophy cabinet is further proof of that.
