French goalkeeping coach slams Tottenham captain

Hugo Lloris has been in France this week, despite suffering a slight injury that has kept him from playing for his country in their internationals.

Lloris and his team mates took to the pitch after their win against the Netherlands to lift the World Cup trophy in front of their adoring fans.

Hugo is now fighting to get back to fitness in time for the Liverpool game on September 15, a huge top of the table clash for Tottenham.

Michel Vorm has been deputising in Lloris’ absence, and French goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon has claimed that it’s time for someone to take his place in the France line up too.

The Chelsea coach believes that Alphonse Areola should be chosen ahead of Hugo in the future, as he is ‘above’ the Tottenham captain.

Lollichon said: “People live in a dream world when it comes to Lloris a bit too much, but for me Areola is above.

“Against Germany, he was positionally very good and in his ability to come out. For me, he’s the best current French goalkeeper.

“He has all the characteristics to be France’s No1. The height, ability with ball in his feet, wingspan, his diving ability, footwork. He’s the most adapted to how they play.”

Is this disrespectful to the World Cup winning captain, just after helping his country to deliver the highest honour in football?

What do you think, Spurs fans?
