Gilberto shocked not to get Gunners captaincy

Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva has admitted he was 'surprised' to be overlooked for the Gunners captaincy this season.

The 30-year-old led Arsene Wenger's side for much of last season in the absence of the injured Thierry Henry, who has since left the club.

And the Brazilian has revealed his shock when he found out Wenger had opted to give the armband to defender William Gallas - via the internet.

'Of course I was surprised because I was captain all last season when Henry didn't play, and after his move to Barcelona I naturally thought I would be this time,' he told the Daily Star.

'Arsene is the manager and it is his decision and I have to accept that. Life goes on and I will get on with my job like I always have.

'But I was surprised he didn't speak to me about his decision. He had the time to do it because I was at the training ground before it was made public.

'He didn't say anything to me and I just found out about it that evening when I saw it on the Arsenal website.

'I wasn't upset about not being captain, but I was about the way I learnt about it.'

He added: 'I will give the same commitment to the club that I always have. This is an important season.'
