Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino hopesnatural leader Harry Kane to deal with the responsibility of the captaincy with no problem.
The striker has been handed the armband in the absence of Hugo Lloris, who isnt expected to perform in 2019 due to an arm injury.
It is nothing fresh to Kane, who has captained England for the past two decades and came away with credit for how he managed a night in Bulgaria that week.
Kane won the plaudits to its dignified manner in which he directed the 3 Lions of anguish abhorrent racist misuse in 27, in the wake.
Spurs are a lot more reliant on Kanes goals than England, though Pochettino doesnt anticipate the duty of the captaincy to impact the 26-year-old facing goal.
He does not need to feel too much stress. He needs to act natural, he said. The most important thing is not to show a lot of the obligation to your shoulders, so to act natural.
When you act natural, if you are a natural leader, then you dont feel the responsibility. If you do what you feel, whatever you feel here in your heart, its natural.
The dilemma is if you have to act. You need to act and if you arent a leader that is real, you spend energy How do I want to confront this problem?
But if you trust in yourself and youre a natural leader, afterward, I guarantee, you do not feel that the obligation.
