Tottenham Hotspurs captain Harry Kane should be permanent England captain according to for England player and current Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood.


“If it was my decision I would give it to him (Kane),” Sherwood said on The Debate. “I think there are three candidates, Cahill, Henderson and Kane.

“For me Kane will play every game and it’s important that whoever wears that armband will be starting most of the games.

“Harry won’t feel it as a burden, it won’t carry any weight and he will carry on scoring goals for England. He will do his best for his country. I think it’s the correct decision [to appoint him captain on Thursday] but I would give it to him permanently.

“It’s somewhat unusual for Harry because he is not captain for Tottenham, that’s Hugo Lloris. It comes a little bit the wrong way around but I don’t think he will be affected.

“I think he’s a natural successor to Lloris when the Frenchman is absent or injured. Harry will continue to develop, he will not rest on his laurels. He will work as hard as he always does to make himself the best he can possibly be.

“If Harry is not having a good game, he can still affect others. I think he can still drive the best out of other team-mates.

“It is also really important you have a captain without skeletons in the closet and I don’t think the three players I mentioned do. We are not going to read about them on the front page.”
