Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has signaled his intention to win a trophy with the club.

The club captain is yet to win a trophy since joining Spurs from Lyon in 2012 and recently tasted success by lifting the World Cup with France this summer.

Tottenham’s last trophy success came in 2008 with a 2-1 win against Chelsea in the League Cup and are well overdue adding some silverware to the cabinet.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently fighting on four fronts having reached the semi-final of the Carabao Cup and are through to the last sixteen of the Champions League.  

Defeat against Wolves has dented their title hopes and are now nine points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.  Next Friday will see the club kick off their FA Cup campaign with a third round tie away to Tranmere Rovers.

While Lloris admits that Spurs have reduced the gap on the Premier League big boys, he is hoping that 2019 is the first time he tastes success with his club.

He told Sky Sports: “This is what we work for,”

“But we know we are in the Premier League and there are a lot of contenders, big teams, big players, and that is why we are excited to be here.

“We are in the most competitive country so we keep working with the same mentality and do our best. We have shown in the past that Tottenham is very competitive and we are reducing the gap with the best.”

  1. Great. Glad Hugo thinks that way!

    Yet another Frenchman (Rabiot) believes that Spurs are “beneath him”. If Rabiot really believes this, then his head would not fit through door at any Spurs facility, would it?.
