Lloris entering the press con like a boss!
The French captain attended the press conference on the eve of the world cup qualifying match against Finland and talked about winning the three points while putting reporters in their place about his choice to go to Tottenham. He was unusually uncommunicative but he held out.
Lloris did not raise his voice when the question was posed twice. Calm, cool and collected, the French captain replied,
“Regarding my personal situation, it is neither the place nor the time to discuss this. I think I’m professional enough to make sense of things. Throughout the preparation, there was a lot of noise and a choice was made, but I prepared myself the best ways to deal with this qualifying phase. I much desire to start this phase and I’ve played a few games (with Lyon) that can help me.”
I utmost certainly agree with Lloris, whose focus is on the Bleus and not his new club. He talked about working hard and the French talent:
“We focus on us. We need to ramp up through the game. But there is an obligation of result. Should come out with three points tomorrow. Impatience. There are many around us. It should not be too hasty. We know that we have a lot of talent. But it is not enough. should work and excel individually and collectively,”
About his preparation for the game – as if Lloris has now started playing between the sticks! – he said,
“I lived one (game) to help me. The most important for me is to feel good .”
And Didier Deschamps, who was present alongside his captain said,
“I have a goalkeeper who played there too long, that is captain. You expect things too.”
The captain also expressed his wish to participate in the 2014 World Cup:
“A World Cup in Brazil makes me vibrate. But do not burn completely, it is necessary to focus on the playoffs. If it can motivate us a little more.”
Lloris talked about focusing on the game at hand:
“Now we only think of Finland, the day after tomorrow, it will be Belarus and so on. Everyone is aware of the importance of launching this campaign.”
When Laurent Blanc named this young man captain, he sure knew what he was doing. Tomorrow, let’s go for those 3 points! Allez Les Bleus!
