Hugo Lloris appeared in court on Wednesday to hear his sentencing for drink driving last month.

The court heard that Lloris had over double the alcohol content limit in his system when he was pulled over by police.

There was also vomit in his car as they caught him running a red light and veering towards parked cars.

Lloris was sentenced to a £50,000 fine and a 20 month driving ban, as well as two weeks wages from Tottenham.

These new details revived rumours that Lloris may be stripped of his captaincy by Pochettino, with the likes of Harry Kane, Eric Dier, and Jan Vertonghen all seen as viable replacements.

However, once again Pochettino has decided to stand firm behind his current captain, stating that Lloris will continue to wear the armband for the foreseeable future.

Hugo is currently out injured, and expected to miss several weeks.

Pochettino had this to say: “He is the first to regret about everything and all that happened is not good, he doesn’t feel great.

“He said he is sorry and he is a man and accepts his mistake. Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering. He is punishing himself. That is a massive lesson for everyone, he was the first to tell me he made a mistake.”

When asked if Lloris would continue as captain, Pochettino said: “Of course.”
