Andreas Beck stays Hoffenheim captain

On Monday evening, Markus Gisdol told his team who will wear the captain's armband for the 2013/14 season: Andreas Beck. The wing back had the task in the second half of last season. His vice-captains will be Sejad Salihovic and Jannik Vestergaard.

The team are due to select two more players for team council roles in the next few days. “Andreas Beck and Sejad Salihovic are the faces of the club. Jannik Vestergaard is a young player and someone we want to establish alongside those two. He's got good charisma and has a big voice in defence,” said Gisdol about his decision.

The role of captain is something the manager believes to have great meaning. “These players are important go-to guys for me. I can talk to them about the tactical alignment of the team as well.”
