[OPINION]: Why Tony Adams Should Be Considered Arsenal's Greatest Captain Over Patrick Vieira

Legends are people whose impacts in actions or words are felt for quite a long time. No football fan can deny the legendary status that Frenchman Patrick Vieira and Englishman Tony Adams enjoy at Arsenal.

These legends have given their sweat, blood and body to make Arsenal the strong brand that it is today. They deserve every accolade and appreciation they get every day of their life as they have earned everything through hard work, determination, courage and confidence.

Both players were captains during their time at Arsenal, but when it comes to determining who is the greatest captain ever to wear the Arsenal armband, I think Tony Adams should be considered Arsenal's greatest captain over Patrick Vieira.

1. PATRICK VIEIRA: The legendary Frenchman is considered one of the best midfielders of his generation. Patrick Vieira began his professional career at Cannes in 1994 and was signed by Arsene Wenger to Arsenal in 1996.

Patrick Vieira was famous for his aggressive and highly dominating style of play with his long stride enabling him to become one of the best box-to-box midfielders the world has ever seen.

During his nine-year stay in the Premier League with Arsenal, Patrick Vieira won the Premier League title three times (which includes the famous invincibles season), four FA Cups and three Community Shields.

2. TONY ADAMS: Known throughout the Arsenal fanbase as "Mr Arsenal", Tony Adams spent the entirety of his career which spanned 19 years in North London. He is considered one of the greatest players of all time to have worn the famous red and white jersey.

Tony Adams won four league titles, three FA Cups, two football league cups, one UEFA cup winners cup, and two Community Shields with the Gunners. A statue of this legendary man proudly stands in a corner outside the Emirates Stadium.

I'd personally go with Tony Adams as Arsenal's greatest captain because he won what could be considered as Arsenal's only European trophy. So who do you think should be considered as Arsenal's greatest captain ever? Patrick Vieira or Tony Adams? Tell us your opinions in the comments section.
