Opinion: A new manager should now mean a new captain and new vice-captains – But who?

There have been plenty of changes for Tottenham in the last couple of weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino making way for Jose Mourinho at the helm of the club.

For many years now, Poch had stuck with Hugo Lloris as his captain through thick and thin, with the Frenchman still technically the official club captain. Lloris is still out injured and is expected back in the new year.

With Hugo out on the sidelines, vice-captain Harry Kane has taken over the armband, and he has been wearing it superbly this season, leading from the front with goals aplenty.

Kane always stands up when he needs to be counted and is a born leader in terms of his quality, his work rate, and how vocal he is with his teammates and the referee.

In my opinion, a new manager is a great excuse to give Kane the permanent armband, an honour he already has for England.

I would also mix up the vice-captains and go for some younger players who can lead the club for many years to come.

I would love to see the following:

Captain: Harry Kane

Vice-Captains: Dele Alli and Harry Winks
