Leeds United boss Neil Warnock says the decision to make Lee Peltier the new captain of the club was a gut feeling after watching him closely following his arrival.
Peltier only arrived at the club on August 4th from Leicester City but Warnock was impressed with the impression made by the defender in his first few weeks with the club.
David Norris had worn the armband in Leeds first competitive game of the season against Shrewsbury Town in the League cup but Warnock was impressed with Peltier`s contribution and his organising of the players in the game.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “I actually decided last weekend. I thought that last weekend he was super.
“I watched him cajole and talk to the players last weekend and organise them. I watched him in training and it was just a gut feeling I had. He is the type of player that I want and I feel all the players respect him.
“I am delighted that he is the captain of such a great club”
Warnock had used a different captain for every game during pre-season as he looked for a new leader following the departure of Robert Snodgrass to Norwich City in the summer.
