Tottenham's Hugo Lloris

Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer has told The Times that Hugo Lloris helped him when he was at Tottenham Hotspur.

Archer was on the books of North London outfit Tottenham from 2009 until 2015. The 23-year-old has shared his experience of training with Spurs goalkeeper Lloris.

The Millwall goalkeeper has praised the France international, and has outlined his helpful nature.

“I’ve been privileged to spend time with him,” Archer told The Times. “People say you need a 6ft 6in ’keeper who’s big and fills the goal but Hugo’s 6ft 2in but so quick, so agile.

“He can make the ground up quicker than taller ’keepers. Hugo’s No 1 for France. It would be so easy for him to be arrogant, but he couldn’t have been better with the young boys; he gave us tips about making the right choices off the field.

“He’s not one to go out a lot. To get to that level you have to be dedicated and obsessed with the game.”

Lloris is one of the best goalkeepers on the planet and is a genuinely world-class footballer.

The 30-year-old has been playing well for Tottenham this season and is only getting better with age.

The former Lyon goalkeeper has kept 10 clean sheets 24 Premier League appearances for Spurs so far this season.

During the 2015-16 campaign, Lloris kept 13 clean sheets in 37 league matches for the North London outfit.

Tottenham will face Millwall at White Hart Lane in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are second in the Premier League table at the moment with 56 points from 27 matches, 10 points behind leaders and London rivals Chelsea.
