FCK captaincy stats as Khocholava wears armband for first time

F.C. Copenhagen had a new captain during last week's UEFA Europa Conference League win over Slovan Bratislava, as David Khocholava wore the armband for a first time.

The defender, who played the full 90 minutes in the 2-0 victory in Parken, was handed the captaincy due to Carlos Zeca's injury and the absence of vice-captains Rasmus Falk and Nicolai Boilesen.

Khocholava becomes the 54th player to wear the F.C. Copenhagen captain's armband, and the 16th non-Dane to be handed the honour.

Here is a list of F.C. Copenhagen's most captained players in the history of the club, as well as their appearances.

  1. Thomas Delaney 110
  2. Peter Nielsen 99
  3. Michael Mio Nielsen 93
  4. William Kvist 85
  5. Tobias Linderoth 85
  6. Lars Jacobsen 73
  7. Henrik Larsen 66
  8. Bo Svensson 59
  9. Hjalte Nørregaard 57
  10. Michael Gravgaard 54
  11. Mathias Zanka 53

Only five non-Danish players for FCK have ever been handed the captaincy for more than two matches.
