Who’s going to be Spurs Captain? It won’t be an easy job !
With former Captain, Mickael Dawson gone to Hull City in this summer’s Transfer Window, the captain’s armband is free for grabs. Before this, new Head Manager, Mauricio Pochettino, was quoted by the Daily Express declaring that “For me, Mickael Dawson is here and while still here, he is the captain.”
After the departure of the English defender, the Argentinian coach, stated that he’ll wait until the close of the Summer Window before deciding about Dawson’s successor. “ We have many leaders, and we will decide in the next few days, he declared to Evening Standard.
Are there many leaders, really? Let’s have a look at some big names and wages of the Spurs team.
Younés Kaboul (DF) : current Captain, but after his poor performance versus Liverpool, will he stay number one choice for the manager? The Captain’s place is on the pitch, game after game, isn’t ?
Christian Eriksen (MF): Best last season Player,(supporters choice) the young Danish has some difficulty to equal last year’s good performances ; also too young to bear this responsibility?
Emmanuel Adebayor (FW): He’s experienced and knows well the squad, but some of his behaviour and performances, didn’t help his popularity index, among the Spurs fans ; there’s also no guarantee that he’ll start in every game.
Jan Vertongen (DF): Many Spurs supporters would have named him Captain, in last’s season beginning but after seeing him sulking and performing poor football on the pitch, I think that they changed their minds. This season, will be crucial for him; a new contract, not yet signed(WHY?) and a return to fitness could give him back the fans’ respect and consideration for the post.
Hugo Lloris (GK): last’s season most consistent player, fans’ favorite and very experienced, but is his position on the pitch the best one? Captain of France, since November 2010 (England vs France 1-2) he was the first to admit that his position on the pitch was not the best one, but he demonstrated the contrary; he’s very vocal and knows very well that he doesn’t need the armband to be a leader.
All of his former managers praised his exemplary behavior on and out of the pitch, but would that be the same for Pochettino? The International break is almost finished, PoMo, will end the suspense before the game against Sunderland, or will he ?
Which one is your favorite for the job ?
