Andre Villas-Boas insists Hugo Lloris is happy with life at Tottenham during his press conference earlier today, refuting claims about Lloris being an unhappy camper (thank the media for that).
AVB held a meeting with his new goalie this morning at the club’s new training grounds.
“We have had a conversation with Hugo. We are extremely happy that he is part of this squad. We have no doubts about his talent and his future in the club, but against Reading we have made the decision to continue with Brad,”
AVB also talks about Hugo being patient and his future goalie’s commitment which won him over.
“Hugo just has to be patient and of course he will be patient.
“He knows that he competes for the first team. He told me: ‘I’m here to compete and I’m here to prove that I’m the best’.
“When you hear this from a player you know that the commitment is there for him to make sure that he gets into that position, so there is no issue whatsoever.”
He also talked about getting Lloris for a steal of a deal.
“We’ve decided, bearing in mind what we want to do regarding the future, we needed to bring a player of Hugo’s talents to the team as soon as possible – and bearing in mind the market possibilities and the price that we got for Hugo, it was an excellent grab for us,”
AVB has not decide if Lloris will be on the bench on Sunday given that Lloris has trained only once with his team mates, but …
“I will decide after training tomorrow, but he will be in contention after the game against Reading, because he will also have more time with the team, more time to know his team-mates.”
So from the boss’s mouth, all’s good at Hotspur Way.
