Spurs striker, Harry Kane is prepared to replace Hugo Lloris as captain, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Poch said he must lead with his heart as he does for the English national team.
Lloris dislocated his elbow in the 3-0 Premier League victory vs Brighton earlier in October and he is expected to be out until 2020.
Speaking recently, Poch believes Kane is a good captain that is ready to step up in Hugo’s absence.
His words, “He has learned a lot from Hugo, who is a good example,”
“He has become a natural leader.
“His commitment is great, not only for Tottenham but for the national team. We are going to miss Hugo for a few months and to have Harry to step up with others is important. He is young but he is very mature, he is capable.”
“Harry does not need to feel too much pressure,”
“He needs to act natural. The most important thing is to not show too much the responsibility on your shoulders.
“If you are a natural leader, you don’t feel the responsibility. When you do what you feel in your heart, it’s natural.
“The problem is if you are not a real leader and you need to act, you spend energy thinking: ‘How do I face this problem?’ But if you trust in yourself and you are a natural leader, that, I promise, you don’t feel the responsibility.
“Hugo is our captain and one of the most important players. We all feel sad for his situation but we need to move on. If we find an excuse because Hugo is injured we are going to fail.”
