Lucas Moura took part in a virtual indoor training session with children this week, organised by Tottenham Hotspur, in which the Brazilian put the youngsters through some drills to improve their fitness and football skills.

At the end of the session, the Brazilian took some questions from the kids involved and gave some enlightening answers.

Among them, he was asked to name the hardest goalkeeper he has come up against and while Moura picked his compatriot Alisson Becker as the best, he also lavished praise on Hugo Lloris and insisted that the Spurs number one was in the top three in the world.

Moura told Spurs TV: “It’s not because he is Brazilian but Alison is very good. It’s very difficult to score against him.

“And I’d say Hugo Lloris as well. I train with him every day and I’m a big fan. For me, he is top three in the world.”

Lloris has been in fantastic form for Spurs since returning from injury back in January of this year and carried that into the international break, making some crucial saves for Les Blues in their 1-0 win over Portugal on Saturday.

Some Spurs fans recently opined on social media that the 33-year-old does not get the recognition he deserves, and it looks as though Moura certainly agrees with that assessment.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I’ve heard a lot of pundits unfairly criticising Lloris, but as a Spurs fan I think he is top notch and on the whole very reliable keeper who often makes outstanding saves. Like any player he will make an occasional mistake but these for me are few and far between.
