He could have, but he shouldn't really be captain here either. He's not confident enough.
I really wish people would stop perpetuating this bollocks
Numerous managers have made him skipper.. and they all know better than you.. they see him day in day out, if he wasn't a leader he wouldn't be either made or retained as the leader
Klopp has had nearly 3 years to change him.
He's backed by plenty of ex players who have nothing to gain by saying anything other than the truth..
He was taken by Mo out of reverence for him to the awards beacsue he's a leader
Honestly none of us have any clue about behind the scenes truth be told, for you to say he's not confident enough or he's not a leader is utter conjecture and bollocks..
If he wasn't what you think he isn't then wouldn't be it.. Jürgen doesn't leave him in the job because he doesn't want to hurt his feelings.. He leaves him in the job because you know what? He's obviously a leader
