“He’s a complete idiot” – Some Spurs fans respond to Lloris’ arrest

Hugo Lloris was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning for drink driving and some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to vent their anger.

The Spurs captain was arrested in central London after failing a roadside breathalyser test.

Lloris led France to World Cup glory in the summer and promised to take part in a pub crawl of his local town in Nice should his side lift the trophy.

It is reported Lloris was arrested at around 2:30am on Friday morning and has been released on bail but will be made to attend court on 11 September.

With a huge Premier League clash against Manchester United coming up, the news has not gone down well with the Spurs faithful.

Here are some of our favourite reactions.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. A lot of ‘holier than thou’, sanctimonious, humbug. A person can fail a breathalyzer test after two small glasses of wine. In other words, Lloris could have had a couple of glasses of wine with a meal and had the misfortune to be caught in a random test, whilst not factually impaired, as far as driving safely is concerned.

    Now conversely, he could have been ‘shitfaced’ and three times the legal limit, in which case he would definitely deserve all the opprobrium being thrown in his direction. However, until the full facts are revealed, it is premature to judge and people should not rush to conclusions. I personally would be very surprised if Hugo was driving seriously impaired, so it is only fair to give him the benefit of the doubt at this point.
