Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd has confirmed new signing Lee Carsley will be his captain for the 2010/11 npower Championship campaign.
Carsley, a former Coventry player and Birmingham skipper, signed a one-year deal with the Sky Blues last week.
Boothroyd told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have Lee Carsley. As soon as I knew we could get him I decided he would skipper the team."
He added: "He's a natural captain and leader who won't take any nonsense or anybody not giving their all so I'm delighted to have him here.
"Any captain has to lead by example and walk his talk so to speak and if you look at Lee's track record it shows he's used to playing in winning teams.
"Not only will he be captain but he'll help me, the players and the staff build a character here that doesn't accept mediocrity and push people to all they can be."
