“The Hugo situation is slightly worrying” – Former Spur is concerned

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas has admitted that Hugo Lloris’ mistakes are becoming a ‘worry’ for the club.

Lloris was dismissed for a 78th-minute foul on Hirving Lozano and Luuk De Jong flicked home an equaliser three minutes before full time to leave Mauricio Pochettino’s Champions League hopes in tatters.

The World Cup winner has made huge errors in successive European matches for Spurs after his positioning gaffe in the opening few minutes against Barcelona gifted the Catalan giants the opening goal at Wembley.

The Spurs captain was forced to watch the final moments on a TV in the tunnel with Heung-min Son being sacrificed for Michel Vorm for the final eleven minutes.

Tottenham must now realistically win their final three matches of the group stage against PSV, Inter Milan and Barcelona to have any chance of progressing.

‘The Hugo situation is slightly worrying,’ Jenas told BT Sport as quoted by the Mail. ‘It’s happening far too often for the manager’s liking.

‘Part of me is going are there covering defenders? But it’s a very dangerous challenge. His foot is up. He is nowhere near the ball; it’s a bad challenge. It’s dangerous and reckless and it’s one too many I think from Hugo.

‘There was one against Barcelona which was strange that cost them the first goal when (Philippe) Coutinho scored.

‘It’s the decision more than anything. I don’t understand why he has come flying out of his goal. It’s a bad decision.’

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Its been more than slightly worrying since seeing his antics in the World Cup Final. His decision making is worse than a three year old in a sweet shop ! For Christ sake drop him ! If a factory worker continually made errors like him, they would be shown the door, why is he any different. Its not like he leads from the front a s a captain. And there lies our problem. We have no leader on or off the pitch. They have it all too easy. Im afraid watching the likes of Liverpool, City and even the South London mob from down the road makes me shudder as to the damage they will do to us at present. We have to be the slowest, most boring team in European and domestic football and it will not get any better now that the manager is totally void of any ideas, even if he had some in the first place. We are scrapping results by the skin of our gums and I can only see it getting worse.
