Manchester United: 6 Candidates to Be United's Next Captain

Patrice Evra has worn the captain's armband for Manchester United since Nemanja Vidic suffered a season-ending injury against FC Basel in December, but who will be the club's captain after they are gone?

It is widely assumed Vidic will reclaim his armband when he returns from injury. Likewise, it seems obvious Evra will continue to deputize when Vidic is unavailable.

However, with both players now in their 30s, it is worth considering who will be the future captain of United.

That is not to say they should be replaced now.

Rather, this is simply speculation about who in the current squad can step up and receive the armband when the veterans call it quits.

Ideally, you want every player in the squad to be a leader, but only one can wear the armband.

These six players all have the characteristics necessary to be captain of Manchester United.
