In the wake of Cesc Fabregas’ appointment as captain, Gael Clichy spoke to the media during Monday’s pre-Dynamo Kyiv press conference.

The defender backed his young teammate to succeed with the armband before reflecting on William Gallas’ spell as captain. The 23-year-old also discussed:

  • feeling happy for Fabregas
  • the Spaniard’s qualities as a captain
  • why Fabregas can succeed at 21 years old
  • 19-year-old Tony Adams captaining Arsenal
  • his respect for Gallas
  • Gallas’ ‘fresh start’
  • recapturing the form that saw them beat Manchester United
  • the importance of consistency
