Five candidates for Real Madrid captaincy should Jose Mourinho replace Iker Casillas

Reports emanating from the Spanish capital on Monday suggested a bold, revolutionary move could be in the offing at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid-based publication Marca hinted that coach Jose Mourinho is considering replacing Iker Casillas with an outfield player as his captain for the 2011-12 season, with the line of thought that the Portuguese would prefer an individual who can be a representative in discussions with the referee in all areas of the pitch.

The story is too old to be commented.
