I think he’s going to stay here with us.” Emery also insisted that while no-one has yet been chosen to succeed Per Mertesacker as club captain, he wishes to have ‘five captains’ in his side for next season. He continued: “This [Ramsey as captain] is not yet official, this decision .” “I said to you I want five captains in the team, then the numbers we are going to give to them, the first, the second, third, four and five. But Aaron has the condition to be one of the captains.
