Graeme Souness claims Spurs star could be past his best

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has claimed Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is past his best despite his recent heroics between the sticks following the return of the Premier League.

The World Cup-winning captain, Lloris has excelled since the return of the top flight and has arguably been Tottenham’s best player in the last six games.

In the 0-0 draw with Bournemouth last week, the 33-year-old pulled off a brilliant late save to keep Spurs from going behind to the relegation-threatened south coast outfit.

Souness told The Times when discussing the changes which Jose Mourinho needs to make to the Tottenham team for next season: “In goal, Hugo Lloris could be a year past his best.”

Since the horrific injury which the Spurs veteran picked up earlier in the season against Brighton, Lloris has come back and saved the blushes of our shaky defence on many occasions.

I’m not sure if Souness has actually been watching any Spurs games of late, but from what I can see Lloris has been our best player since the return of football. It even pleased me to see him run after Sonny in the Everton game to tell him he needed to up his effort levels.
