Lloris set to learn of his Spurs fate

Hugo Lloris could be set to lose the captaincy at Tottenham Hotspur, according to The Sun.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper was stopped by a routine patrol in Gloucester Place in the early hours of Friday and has been charged with drink driving.
He had been on a night out with Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny and Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud, both of whom play with him at international level for France.
The Metropolitan Police said Lloris had been released on bail and was due at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 11 September.
Lloris has been at Spurs since joining from Lyon in 2012, making 256 appearances for the Premier League club but his actions means he faces a £240,000 club fine and could even be stripped of the captaincy by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Spurs boss will decide on what action to take when he meets with Lloris today at Hotspur Way ahead of Monday night’s trip to Old Trafford where we face Manchester United in our third Premier League game of the new campaign.
Spurs said in a statement: “The club takes matters such as this extremely seriously and it will be dealt with internally.”

  1. Lloris needn’t lose his Captaincy. He needn’t lose his job. Like everyone else in this World he made a mistake. Hugo is willing to take full responsibility and make his amends. Luckily no one was hurt. All of us have asked for forgiveness, Hugo included. We must now guide him to be a stronger willed person and give him his opportunity to make good. Hugo is my teams’ Captain and I vote for him to remain. Viva Lloris and COYS!
