Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has once again claimed that replacing Hugo Lloris should be a first port of call for Mauricio Pochettino.
The French World Cup winner is currently sidelined with a dislocated elbow. He suffered the injury in the 3-0 defeat at Brighton in October when he misjudged a Seagulls cross which led to their first goal.
Club captain Lloris’ place in the starting eleven has been taken by Paulo Gazzaniga, who helped Spurs to keep their first clean sheet on Saturday since Jose Mourinho took over as head coach in the 5-0 thrashing of Burnley.
Cascarino has a track record of criticising Lloris and claimed in 2018 that the keeper is a liability (talkSPORT).
He reiterated his viewpoint at the weekend when he claimed that Mourinho must look to review his options at goalkeeper and full-back.
Before meeting the Clarets at the weekend, Spurs had struggled defensively in Mourinho’s opening fixtures having conceded two goals in the matches against West Ham, Olympiacos, Bournemouth and Manchester United.
Here’s what Cascarino had to say.
“I’m not convinced about Hugo Lloris, I haven’t been for a long time.” ❌
“That’s a first port of call for them.”
