Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has claimed that he did not like Hugo Lloris’ comments which followed after Tottenham Hotspur’s defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

The Spurs goalkeeper spoke to the media after his side crashed out of the Europa League and launched a critical assessment (BT Sport) where he said the players need to take full responsibility for their capitulation against the Croatians while also suggested it was consequence of a lack of togetherness in the squad and not respecting the badge.

Cascarino believes that the Frenchman’s comments will have angered some of his team-mates and suggested that his future does not lie in North London.

Lloris has previously been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain which would see him reunite with his former boss Mauricio Pochettino in the French capital (Football Insider).

The pundit claims that Lloris is part of the problem, with the goalkeeper having had a below-par season.

Cascarino has been a long-time critic of the World Cup winner, having described him as a ‘liability’ in 2018 (talkSPORT).

Cascarino told talkSPORT: “He talks about the selection of what’s going on at the club, that’s a real deep criticism… The second comment is the lack of desire to kill the tie,” 

“He’s coming from a position of not having a very good season. It feels like everyone is patting him on the back saying well said. In his dressing room it won’t be that, it will be how dare you I guarantee.

“As much as fans say we needed Lloris to say something like that, he’s not played well. He’s part of the problem. I think that needs addressing in itself. For me, I can’t see him having a future at Spurs.”
