Tottenham goalkeeper praised by his ex teammate.
Lloris' Tottenham take on Ajax tonight in the Champions League semi-final.
The Spurs star played a crucial role in them getting there, saving a penalty in the quarter final from Sergio Aguero which denied Manchester City an away goal.
This more than made up for any errors Lloris had contributed earlier in the season.
Gomes said: "Hugo has some ups and downs, but it can happen to anyone - he's a world-class goalkeeper, and the penalty kicked against City made the difference - without that stop it could have been different.
"He is a very good goalkeeper that I appreciate."
Gomes' departure from Tottenham was accelerated by Lloris' arrival at the club.
Lloris won the World Cup with France last summer and can get nearer to claiming an impressive double by keeping a clean sheet against Ajax tonight.
Winning the Champions League with Tottenham might be an even more impressive feat.
