Dugdale on why he has always considered him a leader out on the pitch
Adam Dugdale has told Crewe Alex Player that it is an honour to have taken over the captaincy from Abdul Osman for the time being but he expects the combative midfielder to retain the armband once he wins his place back in the team.
Following the arrival on loan of young George Evans from Manchester City, Osman has seen himself out of the side in the last couple of weeks and Dugdale was handed the captain’s armband for the visit of Bradford City.
Adam told Crewe Alex Player: “It is a great honour to captain Crewe. I have always been a captain when I was a kid and coming through the Academy and I am enjoying it but I’m sure that would change if Abdul came back into the team. He is the captain and things can change very quickly and I’m sure he will come back stronger.
“I wasn’t in the team and went out on loan to Tranmere to get some games and now I’ve come back and it was a great honour for the manager to give me the armband.
Adam added: I’ve always considered myself as a leader and hopefully those leadership qualities can rub off on a few of the younger ones. I have always been a leader and if I’m honest being captain doesn’t change that. I was the same when Abdul or Murph or Westy was captain. It doesn’t change my performance. I am always the same. I just want to win games.”
