France defender Willy Sagnol believes he will take over as Bayern Munich captain when goalkeeper Oliver Kahn retires.

"I will definitely be Bayern's captain when Oliver Kahn quits," Sagnol told the French sports weekly L'Equipe Magazine on Saturday.

Right back Sagnol, 29, joined the Bundesliga side in 2000 from French club Monaco.

"Being captain in a great foreign club is a source of pride," Sagnol continued. "In these traditional clubs, the armband does not go to the player who has the best relationships with the media but to the boss, the one who is really in charge."

Sagnol has won 50 caps for France in six years and played in two World Cups.
