Leon Britton to captain Swansea City against Petrolul Ploiesti
LEON Britton is to captain Swansea City in their Europa League play-off second leg against Petrolul Ploiesti tomorrow night.
The long-serving midfielder will wear the armband with Ashley Williams resting back in Wales and club skipper Garry Monk only expected to make the bench in Romania.
"It's something I am very proud of," Britton said. "I was fortunate to be captain in the two FA Cup games against Arsenal last season, and I'm very pleased to get another chance again.
"I have been here a long time and to do it in Europe, which is new for the football club, is special for me."
