Club icon Francesco Totti passed on the captaincy to Daniele De Rossi, who then left it to Alessandro Florenzi one season later and now the right-back has left on loan at Sevilla and Dzeko picked up the prestigious armband.
Dzeko told the Athletic: “It's a privilege for me to come after all these guys.
"Totti and De Rossi, who are the biggest legends not just in Rome but also in Italy. It's a bigger responsibility. I came at 30, next month I'm 34. I feel ready."
