Reports suggest that disgraced Lloris will lose captaincy to Spurs team-mate

After the Tottenham goal keeper Hugo Lloris was caught drink driving earlier this week, all the talk has been about whether the Frenchman will lose his captaincy.

Reports now suggest that Harry Kane will indeed take over the captain’s armband, in response to Lloris’ lapse in judgement.

Harry Kane is seen as a ready made replacement, as not only has he worn the armband for Spurs already on numerous occasions, he is actually the current captain for his country, England.

Kane led his team to their best finish at a World Cup in almost three decades this summer, as England descended on the tournament in Russia.

While the striker is undoubtedly a ready-made replacement, it is still far from an ideal situation for Pochettino and Spurs.

Should Lloris lose his captaincy? Or should it be given to the likes of Vertonghen or Dier?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This great servant of Spurs is a superb athlete and there is no one at Spurs to replace him at the moment at WHL he is Spurs through and through a perfect example to the young players for years and years , he has made one surprised error since he arrived at WHL and for the hire archery to make him captain shows just how highly they think of him , I have never agreed with making a Goalkeeper a captain I am of the old school I prefer a half back and stripping LLoris of the captaincy will hurt him quite a lot , A club fine by the big bosses would be sufficient and retain his pride with dignity .

  2. Hugo should be striped of the captaincy until Xmas. Vertonghen, Kane and Dier should all deputise in the meantime. If he keeps his head down and prices himself he should be given it back but no one should get away with doing such things no matter their position.
