Tottenham have made a decent start to life under new manager Mauricio Pochettino , with the Argentine overseeing two wins, a draw and a defeat as Spurs lie in sixth place - one point above North London rivals Arsenal. Pochettino looks set to continue the good work he became known for at Southampton by steadying the usually rocky ship at White Hart Lane after a summer of modest spending and calculated arrivals of young players.
The Frenchman has led the side on several occasions this season and has now been chosen by manager Mauricio Pochettino as the permanent successor to fellow central defender Michael Dawson, who joined Hull last month. A post on the club's official Twitter feed read: " Mauricio has announced that Younes Kaboul has been named our new Club captain with Hugo Lloris and Emmanuel Adebayor as vice-captains."
Despite an impressive debut season he was farmed out to Portsmouth in 2008, where he spent two seasons before rejoining Spurs in 2010. In his first interview since his appointment as Michael Dawson's replacement, Kaboul expressed his delight at being named the club's new captain - and revealed that it was an honour to be handed the armband.

The lingering question on the lips of many Tottenham Hotspur fans will still be why the club didn't bring in a striker during the summer transfer window. However, there was a major problem with the Tottenham side last season and Mauricio Pochettino has shown through his summer signings that he doesn't want a repeat of that issue.
Mauricio Pochettino tried to bring the 24-year-old Argentina international to White Hart Lane as he looked to bolster his squad after the sale of Michael Dawson, and with Vlad ChiricheE linked with a move away, but was unable to complete the deal. And the Villarreal man insists he was always happy to stay in Spain but would have considered the move had the offer from Spurs been good enough.
