Harry Redknapp does not believe Hugo Lloris should be Tottenham Hotspur captain

Hugo Lloris was named as Tottenham Hotspur captain back in 2015.

Harry Redknapp has told the Jim White Show, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 28th November, that he would never have made Hugo Lloris captain of Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino named Lloris as captain at the start of last season, and the Frenchman has generally done well in the role.

However, Redknapp insists that he would never have a goalkeeper as captain of one of his sides - meaning that Lloris would have been his least favourite option to wear the armband in the current Spurs squad.

“Look at Spurs, I wouldn’t have my keeper as captain, he’d be my last choice,” Redknapp said. “I’d never have a goalkeeper as captain.”

Tottenham have also handed the armband to the likes of Jan Vertonghen and Harry Kane during Pochettino’s time in charge, when Lloris hasn’t been fit.

Spurs have a young squad, but players like Eric Dier and Kane have been touted as potential captains in future years.

Tottenham are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table, and they sit four points behind the Champions League qualification spots as things stand.

Spurs have won just once in the last 10 matches across all competitions, with their next match coming against Swansea City at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
