Paul Lambert has said he made the captaincy change because of Roncrete’s natural leadership abilities, it wasn’t a reflection on the job Benty’s had been doing.
Speaking to the Official Site the gaffer explained.
‘Ron was amazing. When he took the ball on the run for 40 yeards? I told him, I pay him to defend, don’t even do it! But I thought he was colossal. He and Ciaran and the two full backs were excellent. In terms of the decision, I just wanted to give Darren a break to concentrate on scoring. At Newcastle and against Swansea he has been excellent.’
Fair comments really. Vlaar is the natural captain in the side both in terms of his attitude but also in his play, and fair for Bent to get some praise as well as his workrate is much improved on last season and he’s certainly putting the effort in.
