Who are the Leaders in the Dressing Room?

Hugo Lloris was recently quizzed by Tottenham Hotspur’s Twitch channel about who the leaders are within the Tottenham Hotspur dressing room. This is a very interesting question and one which as Spurs captain, Lloris is very well placed to answer. One of the criticisms levelled at Tottenham in recent years is a lack of leadership at the club as well as on the pitch. At times when all is not well with management or personnel, a commanding presence, particularly during games, can take all the difference.

“It’s not only my responsibility,” he told Tottenham’s Twitch channel when asked about his role in speaking to the team before fixtures. “There’s also important players in the changing room, some leaders, like Harry, like Pierre [-Emile Hojbjerg], like Eric Dier, who are quite vocal. 

“That’s good, because we share this experience together. And then obviously, there is the manager and the coaching staff.”

I don’t know whether Lloris has frequented the best online casinos but some of the risks he takes between the sticks suggests he likes to gamble. That being said, Hugo Lloris is most certainly a leader at Tottenham Hotspur and would be able to identify those around him who display similar traits. It goes without saying that Harry Kane could step into the captain’s shoes without issue. The currently England national team captain is arguably the best player in the Premier League on his day, and while some of his performances this season have been questionable, Kane consistency over the past decade is second to none. The other players in the squad must feed off his example and Harry’s leadership qualities are crucial to the side’s chances of success.

You can also clearly see that Pierre Emile Hojbjerg demonstrates the attributes of a future Tottenham Hotspur captain. The tough tackling midfielder is never far away from the thick of the action and even when Spurs are having a bad game, his commitment to the cause is not open to question. Some pundits have been critical of Hojbjerg since the start of the season but for me, he’s one of the most solid players in the Spurs squad. His never say die attitude sets a positive example for others to follow.
