Former Sky Sports football pundit Andy Gray has blasted Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The Frenchman returned to Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven for yesterday’s Premier League trip to Burnley after missing the previous two matches with a groin injury.
The Clarets took the lead in the thirteenth minute when Lloris failed to handle Jay Rodriguez’s shot which allowed Chris Wood to tap home.
Gray described Lloris’ effort as poor and believes that a player of the 33-year-old’s calibre as an international goalkeeper should be dealing comfortably with an effort at goal which was straight at him.
Lloris has made more than one error this season, he was at fault for Southampton equalising in North London back in September (Sky Sports) while also fumbling a cross against Brighton a matter of weeks later which led to his dislocated elbow (BBC).
Gray, who was appearing as part of the beIN Sports’ panel for the match at Turf Moor was left disappointed by Lloris’ attempt.
"It's straight at an international goalkeeper and he should be dealing with it. If you're not, you should not be dropping it out in front of you."
