Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers yet to name new vice-captain
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says he is currently weighing up which Reds player to appoint as vice-captain
Brendan Rodgers says he is yet to decide who will be Liverpool’s vice-captain this season after Jamie Carragher’s retirement.
The former England international decided to hang up his boots at the end of the 2012/13 campaign, depriving Rodgers of one of his key leaders in the Reds squad.
Daniel Agger and Pepe Reina have both been touted as potential candidates to act as Steven Gerrard’s second-in-command, but Rodgers revealed is yet to make a decision.
“I haven’t made it yet; there are a few people that I’m looking at,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.
“The captain and vice-captain is a very important position here at the football club, on and off the field.
“We’ve got a number of players that I’m looking at and assessing before I’ll make that decision at the end of pre-season.”
Carragher captained Liverpool to a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on his final appearance for the club after calling time on a decorated 16-year Reds career.
