Tottenham Hotspur took on Manchester United in the International Champions Cup this week in Shanghai, with the Red Devils taking all three points in a 2-1 victory.
Despite being a friendly, the atmosphere on the pitch was far from it, with Moussa Sissoko in particular throwing his weight around.
After the Frenchman appeared to press his studs down on youngster Dan James, a scuffle between the two sides ensued.
Harry Kane, often a captain figure even when not wearing the armband, was quick to jump into the scrap and defend his teammate, something that went down well on Twitter.
How can you not love the fact for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane he will always look to defend his team-mates.
No matter if the game is competitive or not, he is a born leader and has to one day be our captain at Spurs. ?

Plus still don’t see how a goalkeeper can actively be a captain during a game ??♂️
