Some Tottenham fans on social media praised Hugo Lloris after he gave his shirt to a kid who ran onto the pitch and was being pursued by the stewards.
Lloris was arguably Tottenham’s Man of the Match in their 3-2 win over Vitesse Arnhem yesterday, a result that took the North London club up to second place in Group G of the Europa Conference League.
The match, which was Antonio Conte’s first game in charge of Spurs, proved to be a topsy-turvy encounter, with the home side sailing into a three-goal lead before the Eredivisie club came back into the game with two quickfire strikes before half-time.
In the end, Spurs managed to hold on to all three points, with Lloris pulling off some great saves in both halves.
However, it was not just the Tottenham captain’s performance that caught Spurs fans’ eye but also what he did after the final whistle.
When a kid ran onto the pitch and was being chased by the stewards, Lloris intervened to save him before handing him his shirt.
Here’s how some Tottenham fans reacted to the incident:
Is there anything Hugo can’t save?

A kid run onto the pitch at full-time after the Vitesse game, Hugo saved him from the stewards and gave him his shirt. Kane shortly after gave his too.

At the end of the game, a child invaded the field and was caught by security. But luckily for the boy, Lloris and Kane took him in and gave him their shirts. 🥰 pic.twitter.com/faCFavjTrK

Spurs Web Opinion
The gesture from Lloris is a nice one and there is no doubt that the kid will remember this day for a long time. However, one does understand why stewards are quite strict with not allowing these kinds of pitch invasions as it will only encourage more kids to do the same in the future.
