Tottenham Should Hand Gareth Bale the Captaincy, Says Glenn Hoddle: Daily Soccer Report

gareth bale Tottenham Should Hand Gareth Bale the Captaincy, Says Glenn Hoddle: Daily Soccer Report

Tottenham Hotspur legend Glenn Hoddle believes that Gareth Bale should be handed the captaincy at the club.

Here’s what Hoddle said regarding the matter:

“I would have a word with Michael Dawson [the current captain] and give Bale the captaincy.

“Tottenham have had some wonderful captains over the years: Dave MacKay, Danny Blanchflower and, to give Bale the captaincy, is to put your hat on him. That would give him a lot of confidence, that little bit of added incentive, to see if he is a leader, if he can get even more out of himself.”

Do you agree or disagree with Hoddle? And if Andre Villas-Boas decides to give Bale the captaincy, what sort of impact do you think that’ll have, if any, on Michael Dawson’s morale? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
