Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Murphy told talkSPORT that he feels the issue of Hugo Lloris’ future is effectively out of the club’s hands.
Murphy suggested that the Frenchman won’t have any issue with Tottenham as a football club, but will have the hunger and desire to push on and achieve success in the form of physical trophies.
“It’s not about Tottenham, it’s about being at a club and winning things – He’s one of the best goalkeepers in Europe so I’m sure there are going to be takers for him if he is available. He’s going to be able to get a big club,” said Murphy.
There are already reports lingering that he could leave White Hart Lane, with talkSPORT suggesting that Manchester United have already started talks over a £25 million deal for the shot stopper.
It’s a recurring problem for Tottenham because the players are often developing faster than the football club.
The main aim for Spurs is to break into the Champions League, but it’s the ultimate aim of any player to accumulate silverware throughout their career.
Lloris is very important to those collective and individual aims to be successful and manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to work doubly hard to keep him happy and to keep him at the club.
He has to somehow convince Lloris that Tottenham will give him that platform to perform in Europe’s main club cup competition and to convince him that the club can build on the progress they’ve made this season.
