Hugo Lloris has revealed that his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates respected Christian Eriksen’s decision when he revealed that he wanted to leave the club.
The 27-year-old spoke to the Danish media just days after Spurs’ 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final and insisted that he was ready to leave North London to seek a new challenge whilst inviting interest from Real Madrid (Ekstra Bladet).
A move for the midfield man failed to materialise which his left Eriksen playing his football still with the Premier League club until January at least.
Eriksen has under twelve months left on his contract with the club and can open talks with teams on the continent from January to agree a pre-contract deal which would see him walk away as free agent at the end of the campaign.
Lloris believes that Eriksen will continue to give his all while he is still at the club and his personal situation will not cause any conflict in the dressing room.
The playmaker was recalled to Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven for just the second time this season in the 2-2 draw against Arsenal in the North London derby last weekend when he scored the opening goal at the Emirates.
Lloris told the Evening Standard: “Obviously there were a lot of rumours during the transfer market,”
“He talked about this subject and we respected it. But from now until the next transfer market he will be with us and like he showed against Arsenal he will be committed to his teammates and the club and there is no problem at all about that.”
