Tottenham Hotspur have been training hard for the last few days ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s trip to Wembley tomorrow night.

The black and yellows are set to take on Spurs in the first leg of their Champions League round of sixteen tie. The reverse leg in Germany is set for early March.

Tottenham head into the match off the back of four straight Premier League wins, so confidence will be high, but Dortmund can also boast impressive form as they sit top of the German league.

Despite Spurs’ great form, they are still missing Harry Kane and Dele Alli up front, and now face a left-back crisis, with Danny Rose and Ben Davies both unable to play on Wednesday.

Journalists have now spotted Hugo Lloris taking part in training with the outfield players… surely not?

Pochettino explained the curious sight during his presser, stating that Lloris always starts off with the outfield players to work on his passing, before heading off with the goalkeeping coach.

Poch said (Football London): “Yes, he started the warm-up with the whole team, then the goalkeeper coach and then he moves to another area.

“Yes, it’s part of in the way that we work. The goalkeeper must behave like a normal player because we need him to play a lot with his feet and less than 48 hours (after a game) normally we need him to move, to feel, to touch the ball and be involved with the other players, to play boxes and play everything. And then to do specific work with the goalkeeper coach.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Whats so strange about that? he’s not very good with his feet and his kicking needs all the help he can get. I’d have him doing whole sessions with the ball at his feet.
