Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed that he trusts manager Mauricio Pochettino to get the side out of their rut of inconsistent form.
Spurs were widely booed after their performance in the 2-1 defeat to Stoke City, which has left Pochettino under pressure during the current international break.
However, his French number one has backed him via comments in French newspaper L’Equipe.
“When it’s the third coach in a year & there are problems, the coach is not necessarily the problem. I trust this coach,” said Lloris.
Lloris has also offered Pochettino some much need relief relating to his own position at the club.
There has been speculation suggesting Lloris could be on his way out of White Hart Lane, with Spanish giants Real Madrid linked with a £20 million move.
However, he’s revealed that he’s happy in London, which suggests a winter exit isn’t an imminent possibility.
“We are working to find solutions. I went through similar periods at Lyon. I am comfortable in London.”
One of the things many agree the current Spurs side needs is leaders.
Lloris is definitely one of them because he’s one of the only players at the club unrivalled in his position and someone who can be classed as a world class player in the Tottenham Hotspur setup.
His responses to the Pochettino question and concerns over his own future are extremely professional and encouraging from the aspect of his coach and the club’s fans.
Hopefully other Spurs stars can follow his lead over the rest of the international break.
