Brooks, Pervan, Pongracic and Schlager join captain Guilavogui, Casteels and Mehmedi.
The VfL Wolfsburg player team council has grown from last season, with an extra two members bringing the total up to seven. Pavao Pervan, Marin Pongracic, Xaver Schlager and John Anthony Brooks are this season’s new additions, joining captain Josuha Guilavogui, Koen Casteels and Admir Mehmedi, who were already part of the group last year.
Casteels and Weghorst appointed vice-captains
Before the votes had been cast by the players to determine the team council, it had already been agreed that Guilavogui would continue as on-field captain of the Wolves – a role he has held since the beginning of the 2018/19 season. His two vice-captains are to be goalkeeper Casteels (for the third season in a row) and Wout Weghorst, who is being given the honour for the first time.
