Perry Ng could be a future captain of Crewe Alexandra according to his manager, David Artell.
According to the Crewe Alexandra boss, Ng has all the necessary traits to become a leader both on and off the pitch. The Liverpool-born defender, who can also move into midfield when called upon, has been one of the club’s most consistent performers this season, missing just the one game against Swindon Town with a slight injury.
Ng returned to action against Lincoln City last weekend and Artell hailed his centre-half as the ‘best player on the pitch’.
Ahead of this weekend’s home game with Bury, Artell said: “It has been a natural progression for Perry. He started at right-back to find his feet at first team level. The next phase was to become a really good full-back.
“Then it was to move him to centre-half and he had to survive a few games there last season. Now he is becoming a real influential figure.
“I had a chat with him last weekend after Lincoln. He played really well and I thought he was the best player on the pitch, but we went through some things he can still improve on. He understands that and want to improve. He took it on board and agree.
“Perry is a really good player and there is more to come from him. He is becoming a leader and if he is here long enough then I am sure he can become the captain of the football club. “
