Gilberto named Arsenal captain

Gilberto Silva has been officially appointed as new Arsenal captain.

The 30-year-old succeeds the departed Thierry Henry in the role and was vice captain last season, with him often leading the team as Henry spent much of the campaign on the sidelines through injury.

Experienced defenders William Gallas and Ivory Coast's Kolo Toure have been handed the joint role of vice-captain.
