Chelsea loan star Reece James has garnered so much fandom this season that his loan club Wigan Atletic have decided to hand him the captain’s armband for their last home game of the season against Millwall.

The London born star has featured 44 times for the Wigan this season, scoring six goals and securing a championship spot for the Latics.

The 19-year-old’s performances as a right back and in midfield at times have earned him a place in the Championship team of the season.

He has swept almost every Wigan’s player of the month award and since he will return to Chelsea at the end of the season, As a tribute to his heroics, Wigan have decided to make him the Skipper for the last game of the season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Manager Paul Cook said:

“Reece has been an outstanding professional during his time at our club and someone who completely deserves the praise he gets.

“With that said, Reece will captain the team on Sunday and it’s likely that we’ll bring him off during the latter stages of the game so that our supporters can give him the ovation he deserves.”

Chelsea fans in acknowledgement of James’ much-deserved honour have been going gaga on Twitter.
