Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta is keen on replacing Ronaldinho as one of the captains at the club.

The decision on who will replace Ronaldinho, and join Carlos Puyol and Xavi Hernandez as club captains, will be made next week.

“I know that the question about the captains is there. Xavi and Puyol are two in place, while Víctor Valdés would be a good candidate,” Iniesta told Spanish newspaper Sport.

“I would clearly like to do it. It is a big responsibility at a club like this. It would be great and a very a important position.

“We have not yet elected anyone, but I am sure that things will be resolved after the international break.”

He added: “We have not begun the season well, but the squad is confident and in good form. These are things that happen and we are not going to collapse because of one game.

“There is still a long way to go and we have clear ideas about where we are going.

“Guardiola spoke to everyone after the game. When you lose it is obvious that you are going to be concerned about correcting mistakes and it would have been best to play again soon after.”
