Lacazette - How I try to lead on and off the pitch

Alex Lacazette has been wearing the captain’s armband in recent weeks - but what sort of leader would he say that he is?

“When you start the game, from the first man to come on the pitch, even during the game, the signal to give you the armband is a good moment,” he told Arsenal Media. 

“I think I know a bit about everyone and how they work and how I can manage them. On the pitch I try to lead and to show that the way we have to press, the intensity because of the coach is asking us [for this]. 

“But in the dressing room I am more maybe vocal and I want to bring the good vibes and the energy because some days we forget we are playing an amazing sport, we have an amazing job for a big club and obviously it’s natural, it's human to forget sometimes so I just want to bring some smiles and maybe some good luck.”

Laca is one - but who are the other potential leaders in the dressing room?

“There is some future captains,” Lacazette added. “Gabriel, big Gabi, has got presence, leadership at the back. I think when he’s going to be more fluent with English, it will help a lot. 

“Ben White as well, he’s more quiet maybe, but by the way he plays he can be a good leader and maybe with edge can build up. 

“Sambi Lokonga, but he’s already been a captain in the past so it’s not hard to say he can be a good captain. Kieran as well because I think he’s been a captain as well in the past for the national team a few times. You can see some future captains, or leaders.”
