Jagielka happy with captaincy timing

1 June 2013 18:08

Phil Jagielka thinks he has been handed the Everton captaincy at the ideal stage of his career.

Jagielka assumes the armband from Phil Neville after the former Manchester United man left the club.

The 30-year-old has established himself as an integral figure in the Everton side since joining from Sheffield United in 2007, and has also become an England regular in recent times.

And the defender feels that experience has been of great benefit to him, meaning he is well equipped to lead the Goodison Park outfit into the new season.

"I am looking forward to it (being captain) and it has come at the perfect time for me," he told the club's official website.

"I am 30 now and I have been here long enough to know how the club works."

Jagielka conceded that it may take some time for him to adjust to the off-field responsibilities of captaincy, but insisted his performances on the pitch would not change.

"I would like to think people would come and see me if they want any advice or have a problem," he added.
"I am not the quietest round the changing room so hopefully I will be approachable. On the pitch I find it easy to be captain but off the pitch it is going to be a bit different for me."
