Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has told L'Equipe he feels 'embarrassed' after his recent troubles.

Lloris was recently convicted in court of drink driving, with the Evening Standard reporting he was fined £50,000.

Upon his return to action for Tottenham against Barcelona, Lloris made a mistake after just two minutes.

 

He has kept his international place and he starred for France against Iceland last Thursday.

Speaking candidly to L'Equipe, Lloris reflected on his difficult couple of months.

He said: "It shook a little. It's pretty tricky and embarrassing. 

"This is not the image that we want to give, but mistakes, it happens. It must not affect me as a man. It does not change who I am, the professional that I am."

Lloris remains Tottenham's first choice goalkeeper and as far as on pitch situations are concerned, he has some improving to do.

The mistake against Barcelona was not a one off, with errors creeping into his performances over the past 12 months, notably in the World Cup final.

The Frenchman clearly has professional pride and has a World Cup winner, he will not want his reputation to be tarnished. 

He must cut out the errors on and off the field.
