Clarke predicts new captain for Ryder Cup team

Darren Clarke is predicting a change of captain for the European Ryder Cup team ahead of the next competition.

Nick Faldo has come in for criticism following Europe's recent poor performance, culminating in defeat to the US in Valhalla.

Clarke was passed over for a place in Faldo's team and he is now predicting that the Englishman will not be retained as captain for the next tournament.

He says there are so many qualified candidates that he cannot see Faldo retaining the job.
