Britton: I'd Be Proud To Captain Swans

Britton: I'd Be Proud To Captain Swans

Midfielder Leon Britton said he would be proud and privileged to be Swansea's captain.

The former West Ham United player could be our stand in skipper for tomorrow's game at QPR if club captain Garry Monk doesn't make a return from a back injury.

Alan Tate has worn the armband in recent games but he suffered an ankle injury on the weekend and will be out for 3-8 weeks.

Britton told the Western Mail:

'I've been at the club six-and-a-half years and I think I've only captained the team twice - for 20 minutes at Charlton in the first game of the season after Garry Monk was sent off and the second half on Saturday.

'It's something I'd like to do more of because I know the club well, and I feel I'm old enough and experienced enough to do it.

'If Tatey and Monks are not ready for the next match, I'll put my hand up. I'd be proud and privileged to do the job.'


Britton also added that he's expecting a tough game tomorrow at Loftus Road:

'It's not going to be easy to pick up wins on the road, but we're a side which plays the same whether we're home or away,'

'If we come away with a draw at QPR having not played too well, we'll look at it as not a bad result.

'They have a lot to play for themselves, so we'd expect them to come at us.'
