Hugo Lloris has 'total confidence' in Mauricio Pochettino, acknowledges his 'difficult' task

Hugo Lloris Euro 2012 Penalty

Hugo Lloris has discussed Mauricio Pochettino's first season at Tottenham.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has told The Star Online that manager Mauricio Pochettino has helped everybody at White Hart Lane.

Lloris, 28, joined Spurs from Lyon in 2012, and has already played under three managers in North London with Andre Villas-Boas, Tim Sherwood and now Pochettino all taking charge during his time at the club.

The French international is widely considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, and he has enjoyed another superb season, this time under Pochettino.

Tottenham may have won just one of their last six games, but many will still believe that this has been a positive first season in charge for the Argentine, who made the move from Southampton almost a year ago.

A top six finish is still on the cards for Pochettino and Spurs, but last weekend's 3-0 defeat away at Stoke City has seen some criticise the Tottenham boss for allowing his side to slack off towards the end of the season.

Despite that, goalkeeper Lloris has told The Star Online that his manager has a clear plan for the club, and that everyone associated with Tottenham should be confident under his stewardship - even if it can be difficult to achieve goals in the first year at a new club.

"He has helped everyone at the club," said Lloris. "He has a proper philosophy for football and knows where he wants to go, and where he wants to take the club. I think we can have total confidence in him. It’s difficult to build success in one year but we know where we want to be and the next step is to get there."

Pochettino will now be looking to add more quality to his squad this summer, as well as keep hold of Lloris, who may be a target for some of the top clubs in the world after a strong season - and if he can achieve both, Tottenham may be on course for a great campaign next season.
