Tottenham Hotspur have been without their captain for a number of weeks now, after Hugo Lloris suffered a nasty injury against Brighton in the Premier League.

While attempting to catch the ball in the opening few minutes against Brighton, Lloris managed to hand the opposition a free goal while also dislocating his elbow.

Hugo was stretchered off the pitch and taken to hospital, with Paulo Gazzaniga coming on to replace him. Spurs since signed ex-player Michel Vorm to act as cover between the sticks too.

Gazzaniga has been a more than capable deputy in the absence of Lloris, with Kane stepping up and wearing the armband well.

However, it may not be long until Spurs fans see the French World Cup winner back between the sticks, as he issued an update on his injury this week.

Lloris claimed that everything was going well and that he was aiming for a January return. The question remains, will he be able to get his spot back off Gazzaniga?

Lloris said (M6 via Football London): “Everything is well. There can always be hazards, but my goal is to be ready for January.

“Whether it’s the beginning, the middle or the end, I don’t know. In any case, I’ll take time to make sure I’m well-healed and that I can come back in top form.

“I’m also using the time to regenerate myself. I’ve never been away from the pitch for so long, so it’s something new, but I’m treating it positively.

“I’m using this period to spend time with my family and my children.

“I’m in good hands and we’re moving forward calmly. Everything’s been done as it should have been. Now, we have to focus on rehabilitation, strengthening, gradually gaining mobility and confidence.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Hugo should just retire, he’s had a good run. Gazza has been an absolute soldier for the shirt the past month and HK should be captain anyway.
