4. Mikel Arteta

Mikel Arteta was an absolutely tremendous midfielder in his day and was granted captaincy towards the end of his career. Still, Arteta had a great impact on his teammates and led by example not only on the pitch, but off the pitch too. Under the captaincy of Arteta, the Gunners won two FA Cup trophies.

The Spaniard clearly loved being a leader as after he hung up his boots, he spent his time dedicated to learning from the best footballing mind in the world, Pep Guardiola. Then, he took on the job at Arsenal, where the future begun to look bright.

3. Thierry Henry

One of the stars of the invincible team, but Thierry Henry wasn't the captain during this infamous season. Still, he didn't have a bad run-out as Arsenal captain as he became the club's leading goalscorer in the season after he became captain. Furthermore, he led the Gunners to the only Champions League final they have ever played in.

Thierry Henry is widely regarded as the best player to ever represent Arsenal and it's clear to see why. Fans certainly love the Frenchman, who has a statue outside the Emirates Stadium. In many ways, they still have dreams of Henry returning to the club for a leadership role of some kind.
