Lloris describes the important quality he thinks Tottenham are missing

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has described what he feels the current side is lacking.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris told Spurs TV how the defeat to Chelsea in the League Cup final will benefit the club.

Tottenham were edged out 2-0 over the course of 90 minutes and the French shot stopper has been keen to stress how beneficial the experience will be for the club’s younger players.

“I think it will make us better and stronger in the future. We had a lot of young players and it was their first final experience,” said the Frenchman.

“In football you cannot buy experience. You need to play that sort of game to grow up – I’m not worried (about the team’s spirit).”

Tottenham’s attention now switches to the Premier League game against Swansea this week but Lloris does have a point with his sensible comments.

Tottenham’s players who experienced their first final yesterday won’t want the feeling of disappointment and negativity to linger.

They should be looking to use the defeat as motivation to ensure they never experience those feelings again.

When Tottenham next get to a Wembley final, hopefully next season, they’ll know what the occasion and pressure is all about.

For now it’s time for the younger players to focus on the form they have built up over a long season to give Spurs the best possible chance of breaking into the top four by the end of the campaign.

Tottenham can’t buy experience, but the manager can develop it and stress how important it is as he should do over the next couple of days.
