The captaincy and overall leadership at the club over the past 6 months has been a struggle, anyone will admit that. With Reece James made club captain ahead of the season, with Chilwell as vice-captain.

As we know both have suffered injuries and Conor Gallagher stepped up to take the armband. With Gallagher picking up a 2nd yellow card during Chelsea’s 3-2 victory over Brighton, Chelsea went into the Man Utd game without Pochettino’s preferred captains. This opened the door for Levi Colwill.

Colwill has been speaking in a recent interview about that proud moment via the club’s website, he said;

“I found out in the changing room because Reece came up to me, which meant a lot. I didn’t actually believe him at the start but then he showed me the armband on my shirt. I didn’t quite believe it and it probably was a good thing. If I’d had time to think about it, it might’ve affected me a bit.”

Colwill recalls the experience as something he can take forward as a development of leadership. He went onto say;

“I gave the team talk and I think my first word was a bit shaky , I wasn’t looking at anyone, but then I got into it and I think it was good. I tell the boys I think I’m up there for team talks now, maybe second best.”

Colwill certainly has the ability to become a future captain for the club and his leadership skills can only help Chelsea’s lack of experience which has been notable criticism in the wider football world.
