Arsene Wenger sees "no reason" to take the Arsenal captain´s armband away from Gilberto - but expects the likes of William Gallas and Kolo Toure to help in the leadership role next season.

The veteran Brazilian is currently away on an extended break following his exploits in the Copa America this summer, and is set to sit out the start of the new domestic season as a result.

"The captain last year was Gilberto and there is no reason to take it away from him," said the Arsenal boss. "At the moment in some games it is Gallas and some games it is Kolo because I feel that the centre-back position is the best one from which to captain the teams."
