Long-serving star claims that he does not think he will end his career at Spurs

Hugo Lloris is now into his eighth season at Tottenham after moving from Lyon in the summer of 2012 and has experienced a lot of highs and lows during that time.

He has been an ever-present in the Spurs side through the 8 years barring the first few months and was made the captain of the club by Mauricio Pochettino in 2015.

At 32 years of age, he is showing no signs of slowing down just yet. His present contract with the club runs out in the summer of 2022 but the Frenchman has said that he is unlikely to finish his career at Tottenham.

He indicated that he would be open to a move to MLS in the future.

Speaking to France Football (as relayed by the Evening Standard), Lloris said, “I do not think I’m going to finish [my career] at Tottenham.

“I still have a few years ahead of me. In any case, I will do everything to make the most of it.

“You also have to know when to say stop at the right time, but I’m not against the idea of discovering something new. That could be the United States. I could finish over there, we’ll see.”

The former Lyon stopper also claimed that he has never considered leaving Tottenham but insisted that it wasn’t because of a lack of ambition on his part.

Lloris added, “I never really opened the doors [to the idea of leaving Tottenham] because I felt like I was happy where I was.

“It’s not a lack of ambition on my part, it’s just that I’m part of a project and every year I’ve seen the progress to reinforce my decision.

“If tomorrow I felt there was a regression, certainly I’d then ask the question [about leaving].”

Spurs Web Opinion

It is extremely unfortunate that Lloris has a reputation of always having a mistake in him, which is why he isn’t put in the same bracket as the likes of Manuel Neuer and David de Gea. In my opinion, that is a bit unfair on the Frenchman as other top goalkeepers also make errors. His extraordinary reflexes and his ability to get out quickly in one on one situations have saved Tottenham numerous times over the years.
