Kalvin Phillips not thinking about armband but is he future Leeds United captain?

Leeds United’s midfielder recently signed a new deal at Elland Road.

After Leeds United’s win over Barnsley at the weekend Kalvin Phillips was speaking to the local press about the game. It came at the end of a big week for the local lad. He had signed a new long-term contract at the club earlier in the week after a summer of transfer speculation surrounding his future. 

One question that was put to him by the Yorkshire Evening Post surrounded his potential as a future Leeds United captain. 

Phillips gave a short and respectful answer, as to be expected from the upstanding gentleman he clearly is. 


“We have got a great captain now.

“If it comes then it comes but if it doesn’t it doesn’t.”

 

But the question must be asked, should Phillips be a future Leeds United captain?

At the moment, Liam Cooper is performing the role admirably for Leeds. He, like Phillips, committed his long-term future to Leeds last week and at 28-years-old will hope to hold on to the role for some time.

Phillips’ chances of being captain whilst Cooper remains a mainstay at the club, therefore, seem slim and that is a shame. 

Leeds United fans would love to see the local boy leading out his beloved club on a regular basis. 

If Leeds get promoted, which will surely see Phillips remain at the club, it might be an image fans get to see a little way down the road. But right now, he will continue to work hard for his current leader in Cooper.
