Bruno insisted that the oneness is on every player in the Brighton & Hove Albion squad to lead by example after the defender captained the side during the narrow defeat to Aberdeen on Sunday.
The Spaniard donned the armband for 76 minutes against the 2014/15 SPL runners-up and he has called upon his teammates to show their leadership qualities.
He told The Argus, “It’s an honour for me, but the most important thing is that everyone in the dressing room has to be a captain. We have to be beside each other all the time.
“I’m an experienced player, so I know that when you play in these sort of games [v Aberdeen], you need to shout to the players so they are ready from the first minute. I think it worked because we started well.
“We always want to win and it wasn’t possible on Sunday, but we’ll learn a lot from the game.”

The 34-year-old then looked ahead to the upcoming games with Gillingham and Sevilla, as the countdown begins towards the season opener against Nottingham Forest on 7th August.
“They’re different challenges. It’s going to be tough playing against Gillingham from League One who are a good side and Sevilla are one of Europe’s top teams.
“They are playing against Watford on Friday, but they have 22 strong players in the squad, so it’s going to be tough and a good test for us.
“I played under their manager for five years and he’s a very good coach. He has a great team of course, but a lot of clubs were interested in him this summer and he didn’t move. He loves good possession football and has done very well.
“We know their potential and we have to give 100 per cent to be ready for five days’ later against Forest at home.”
