Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) must wear the captain’s armband and lead his teammates on the pitch.
On the 9th (Korean time), multiple local media outlets, including Britain’s ‘Football London’, reported Hugo Lloris’ injury. He is expected to be out for 6 to 8 weeks. Tottenham prepared a rebound by winning 1-0 against Manchester City just before, but it was confirmed that Lloris’ knee ligaments were damaged. He doesn’t need surgery, but he needs rehabilitation for a relatively long time.
It’s a big bad news for Tottenham. Antonio Conte has always emphasized the importance of Lloris. This is because not only his skills but also his influence on the team is very large. Moreover, Tottenham has to play both the first and second legs of the round of 16 of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) against AC Milan during the period when Lloris breaks away from the front line. It is scheduled for February 15th and March 9th. Even if Lloris comes back in six weeks, it’s late March.
Kane must fill the leadership void left by Lloris. ‘Football London’ predicted that Kane would wear the captain’s armband instead. Kane also captains the England national team and was active as captain during the last World Cup in Qatar. Kane is not the type to push the players hard, but he is evaluated as a leader who quietly encourages morale and leads by example. The media argued that it would be appropriate for Eric Dier or Pierre-Emile Hoivier to assist Kane as vice-captains. Since Lloris is absent for the time being, the role of other influential players is important. 카지노사이트
For Kane personally, this UCL result is very important. This is because his performance this season could have a big impact on his contract renewal with 18 months remaining on his contract. Depending on his performance this time, he can further increase his value.
Furthermore, Kane is dreaming of winning the trophy. Looking at his individual career alone, he boasts world-class standards, such as becoming the all-time leading scorer of Tottenham and achieving the EPL 200 goal in the shortest period of time, but he has yet to win a championship. The cup competition, which is held as a tournament, is also a good opportunity to aim for the championship. In the 2018-2019 season, he reached the UCL final, but lost to Liverpool and missed the championship cup blindly.
