Harry Kane describes the 'shame' about his first Tottenham game as captain

The striker was gutted not to get a win in his first game as captain.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino had a choice to make yesterday afternoon. With Hugo Lloris out injured and Jan Vertonghen also absent he had to decide who to make captain.

In the end he decided to go with the man of the moment. He have the privilege to Harry Kane.

The England striker, who has been banging in goals for fun this season, was given the honour of captaining the club he has played with since the age of 11.

After the game he Tweeted about the honour, but also spoke to the official Tottenham media crew. He is quoted on Twitter as stating:

It was indeed a shame he could not help secure the win or even bag a goal on his debut as captain. However, in all honesty, the game never looked like providing a goal.

The 0-0 draw with Burnley was a truly drab affair, with Tottenham looking worn by the 50 games they have played so far this season.

When Lloris or Vertonghen return, Kane is likely to lose his captaincy at the club. But this is surely not the last time he wears the armband.
