By

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed Per Mertesacker as the one to take the armband in his team and that he will temporary replaced by the other senior players of the squad.

The German is ruled out for months after suffering a knee injury in pre-season.

And the Frenchman explained that the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Santi Cazorla and former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech will take over captaincy duties until the 31-year-old comes back from the injury.

"Per [Mertesacker] is a very respected figure in the dressing room, is loved as well and is also a very demanding figure," Wenger told the club's official website.

"I think it is absolutely natural to be [him].

"[In his absence] that's where it will be taken by the assistants. One of them will be [Laurent] Koscielny, also [Santi] Cazorla - the experienced players - [Petr] Cech maybe.

"We will have a group of people that will take care of the energy levels and the problems of the team. That will be down a lot to the experienced players."
