*** Lacazette replaces the injured Giroud. Once again, we laughed (well, I didn’t) when he tried to pronounce Schneiderlin.

Now, my favorite clips from that kind of lengthy interview:

When asked about his vacation: “None of your business what I did for my holidays, but I’m well rested.”

On Giroud being injured: “It’s sad for him, I didn’t think it was going to be that bad. Important thing is for him to get back to full fitness.”

On why he chose 21/23 from WC squad: “I’ve chosen 21 of 23 WC squad, would’ve been 22 but for…

Lloris talks about captaincy

Hugo Lloris says he will continue to be a leader in the Tottenham dressing-room and on the pitch, regardless of whether he is given the captain’s armband or not

Michael Dawson departed for Hull on Tuesday, leaving Spurs without a permanent skipper – and Mauricio Pochettino has stated he will wait until the transfer window has closed before making his decision.

Lloris captains the France national team and is a strong candidate, but the goalkeeper said: “I don’t really need to wear the armband to feel like a leader for the team.

“I’m very proud to be the captain of the French national team, and for Tottenham it’s just my natural decision, but I’m not expecting something about that.

“I’m just trying to do my job in the best way and try to help the team to have the best performances.

“In the changing room I know that I have my place and I try to be an example for everyone, especially for my young team-mates, because in the squad there are a lot of young players.”


Lloris admits he was wrong to play on with concussion


Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted that he should not have played on against Everton when he sustained concussion last season and has applauded the new regulations that takes the decision out of players’ and coaches’ hands.

Lloris, 27, sustained a big knock to his head from Romelu Lukaku at Goodison Park last season but demanded that he stay on the pitch following the injury. His form then actually dipped in the weeks after the injury as it became clear that he should not have played on.

The medical staff at Goodison and on Tottenham’s bench warned that the Frenchman should not have carried on playing but he forced his way back on and was clearly struggling.

Tottenham manager, Andre Villas-Boas, was criticised for allowing Lloris to stay on the pitch and the Frenchman now knows it was a mistake to not go off following the hit from Lukaku.

He has also applauded the new rules implemented that takes the decision away from playing staff, leaving the final decision whether to take a player off to medical staff.

“It is definitely a good thing,” Lloris said in several papers. “We don’t have to play with our health and someone in the profession had the good sense to find something better.

“I was a subject of that and so it is easier for me to understand the decision. I realise now that I had taken a risk with my health. It will not happen again.

“When you are on the pitch you don’t want to leave the pitch, you want to stay with your team-mates and help them get the best result.

“Now the rules are very clear and it will be better for everyone.”



Clean sheet for Lloris as Spurs win at home

Spurs played their first home game of the BPL season and came away with a 4-0 victory.

Lloris was a virtual spectator for much of the match as his team had the game under control.

The team’s first goal came in the 12′ when Adebayor crossed to the back post for Chadli, who did some excellent ball controlling on his chest before scoring the opener. In the 30′ Lamela swings in a corner and Dier is there to head in the second goal. Lamela is involved again in the 3rd goal when he sends in a wonderful cross for Chadli to head home his brace.

The 4th goal came in the 65′ when Rose finds Adebayor and he makes no mistake from a central position in slotting home that goal.

With this vital victory, Lloris claims his 2nd clean sheet of the season.
