Stindl goes into his fourth season as captain

Lars Stindl remains captain of The Foals and his deputy is Yann Sommer, just like last season

Lars Stindl and Yann Sommer will continue as captain and vice captain of the Fohlenelf for the 2019/20 season. Both had their roles confirmed by coach Marco Rose. Matthias Ginter will be third captain from the new season.

Stindl took over the role from Granit Xhaka in 2016/17 and is now going into his fourth season as Borussia captain. Yann Sommer has been vice captain since last season. The goalkeeper will lead Gladbach onto the pitch wearing the captain’s armband for the first competitive games of the new season as Stidl continues his recovery training after suffering a fractured tibia in April.
