Pochettino comments on Hugo Lloris's Tottenham future

Hugo Lloris

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has received high praise from Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been quoted as saying by the Daily Express that Hugo Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. 

Lloris has been one of Spurs' stand-out performers so far this season and his displays have obviously impressed Pochettino, who insists the club have no plans to sell the Frenchman. 

And the Argentine boss wants Lloris to stay at White Hart Lane and help the team claim a Champions League spot.

"He is one of the best keepers in the world," he said. "His contribution has been amazing. He is very happy with us.

"So it is very difficult for a club to get in him because he is happy here. People keep saying he wants to play in the Champions League. Well, maybe he can do that with Tottenham."

Despite this lavish praise, Lloris will feel his workload has been significantly reduced of late, compared to what it was at the start of the season. 

The Tottenham stopper constantly had to be on guard throughout the opening months of the campaign but the side's improvements more recently have taken some of the focus off him. 

Attacking players such as Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane have been dominating the headlines of late and that shows just how much progress the side have been making under Pochettino. 

Lloris is likely to be key at the weekend as Tottenham look to thwart Arsenal's attacking talents, however, and his display could be decisive in concluding which side (if any) collects all three points.
