Hugo Lloris thinks Tottenham Hotspur lacks the experience in their race for the title. Speaking to The Evening Standard, the goalie told them:
“We don’t have the maturity of some teams, like [Manchester] City or Arsenal. You need experience. You can’t but it. You need to play games, you need to lose, you need to win. We are young, we are talented, we are doing well, there is a great spirit in the team and we are working hard, so everything is positive…but we need to go step by step.
“We will see where we are before the last 10 games, but at the moment we want to fight and stay as high as possible in the table.”
I think Spurs is having one of their best seasons yet, but they need to maintain motivation if they’re serious about contesting the title.
Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Hugo Lloris will restart training again next week following his injury. The goalie hasn’t trained this week and some reports say his wound is still healing.
According to France Football, there’s a secret clause in Hugo Lloris’ contract allowing him to leave for €20m if Tottenham don’t qualify for the Champions League.
But Tottenham has dismissed the clause claims, saying there is nothing of the sort and that they don’t plan to sell Lloris anytime this summer.
Okay, I have been behind and I admit that the stress of real life is finally catching up which is making it hard to spend as much time as I would have like updating/bettering the blog.
If you’re not in the know, here’s a few things which you might have missed.
1. Lost against Norwich
Hugo Lloris and the Spurs lost away to Norwich over the weekend. Robert Snodgrass scored the only goal, thus setting Spurs backward in their attempt to break through the top 4.
2. Lloris is a father again
Lloris and the wife, Marine welcomed a baby girl. Marine posted the news on Twitter, saying that their family has grown since Monday 24th of this month as they welcomed Giuliana to the family.
Congrats to the happy parents.
3. Call up to the French side
Hugo Lloris has been called up to represent the national side to face Holland next week Friday be it God’s willing. If you want to see who else made the team, see here:
4. 50th app in all European competitions
Last evening, Lloris made his 50th European appearance of his career. Spurs faced Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk at home in the second leg of the Europa League and won 3-1 (3-2 on aggravate). Lloris did not see much of the ball but he was alert every time.
5. Those rumors
Hugo Lloris is said to be on the wishlists of Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco. Lloris had said he do not want to return to the Ligue 1, but sometimes I think the goalie deserve so much more. He should be playing Champions League football.
