Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker Harry Kane has shown his leadership on the pitch for both club and country on more than one occasion.

However, it was a key moment in the Leicester City dressing room whilst on loan with the Foxea where his team-mates saw his leadership credentials for the first time.

In an interview with Football.London, Martyn Waghorn revealed the moment when Kane stood up and showed himself to be a future captain.

In a 2-1 defeat against an out-of-form Derby County, Kane came off the bench for the last 20 minutes but was left furious that the Foxes had thrown away valuable points in their promotion fight.

“We lost a game away from home, at Derby if I am right,” Waghorn said.

“And after the match, I saw his passion and anger at losing a game.”

Kane spent just a few months at the Foxes on loan between the 2012/13 season where they were fighting for promotion to the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

“But at the time he was young, on loan but he hated it and stood up in front of the dressing room which takes guts and tell people it’s not acceptable.

“That is when you knew he hated losing and had what it takes,” Waghorn revealed.

Kane has shown how much he hates losing throughout his time at Spurs and has demonstrated his leadership first-hand at England as the captain. Many Spurs fans are calling for Kane to take the armband over Hugo Lloris but for the minute, the striker leads from example.
