New Tottenham captain announcement due soon.

Posted on September 08, 2014 by Guest Writer

Once the Tottenham squad return from International duty this week it will be necessary to choose the club captain, Mauricio Pochettino went to great pains to point out that he wished to wait until after the transfer window closed to make the appointment and he also said that it was a matter for the entire squad to have input. Because of the delay many have jumped to the conclusion that one of the new signings was to be appointed with Fazio, being a fellow countryman and the captain of Sevilla, of course he was only appointed their captain in this close season the club having sold last years captain to Barcelona. So who might it be?

So far Younes Kaboul has taken the armband when chosen to play and I have no doubt he will so again, but the problem is that he probably won’t remain as first choice with Eric Dier and in particular Frederico Fazio having been brought in. The club captain will probably be chosen from either ¬†Hugo Lloris or Jan Vertonghen the two players almost guaranteed a place in the starting lineup, my guess is that it will be Hugo Lloris who has committed to the club by signing a new contract.

Earlier in the transfer window there was talk of a new deal being offered to Vertonghen but too date there has not been an announcement made that the situation has changed UNLESS it goes hand in hand with the appointment of the position of captain.

Michael Dawson was the recipient of the honour of being club captain even though he has not been considered an

automatic starter when others were fit to play, before him it was Ledley King who himself was only available to play when fit. This suggests perhaps that Younes Kaboul might land the job, he has already shown the right signs as only last week he visited the injured Limassol keeper in hospital and presented him with a signed shirt.

My guess is that Kaboul will land the job of club captain while Lloris takes the deputy position and the armband when Kaboul is not chosen to play.
