In the last few hours, news has broken that Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has been charged with drink driving.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper was stopped by a routine patrol in Gloucester Place in the early hours of Friday.
Lloris enjoyed success with France during the summer when he captained his country to World Cup glory, but now faces the shame of negative headlines for both himself and our football club.
While Mauricio Pochettino will want his players focused on Monday night’s trip to Manchester United to maintain our unbeaten start to the new Premier League season, we find ourselves in the headlines for the wrong reasons.
Hang your head in shame, Hugo. If the club have any morals, they will take the captaincy off him.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “A man has been charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, W1.
“Hugo Lloris, 31, of East Finchley was charged with drink driving on Friday, 24 August.
“He has been bailed to return to Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 11 September.”
