The
Belgian centre back wore the armband in pre-season and Arsène Wenger
has confirmed that he will take on the job permanently after the Club
agreed terms to sell Robin van Persie to Manchester United.

Spanish midfielder Mikel Arteta has succeeded Vermaelen as Arsenal’s vice-captain.

“It is Vermaelen and Arteta,” said Wenger at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“Vermaelen
