Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been left fuming with Hugo Lloris’ comments after the Champions League final.
Spurs were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in Madrid on Saturday, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side were left crestfallen after the contest.
Tottenham were so close to winning the Champions League for the first time, but they just could not find their top performance in Spain.
"I don't think Tottenham Hotspur is the type of club to challenge for the Champions League every season,” Lloris admitted.
The comments have not gone down well at all with Spurs fans, who think that Lloris is not showing enough ambition for a player who wears the armband.
Maybe it’s this attitude that cost us in the end— Lee Willis (@yiddoman) June 2, 2019
Harry Kane for captain now thanks hugo— Georgia (@georgiapearl21) June 2, 2019
He should not be captain— Dan (@Daniely79) June 2, 2019
If he really thinks that then he has to go. Replace hom with someone who can kick the ball— Jack (@JackMurray2) June 2, 2019
It's not the message our captain should be voicing AT ALL— Adam Hinds (@SpursMan1972) June 2, 2019
It’s time we change our captain. Someone who will lead this club and be positive and confident in the players abilities. Hugo is a great player but he is not a leader. I would say Harry Kane should be our captain #COYS #THFC— Coys888 (@C0YS888) June 3, 2019
I’m not sure our captain should be thinking like that let alone be saying it in an interview. I’m disappointed. I’d give the captaincy to Kane as with an attitude like that we might as well not bother.— Hakan O (@hakano76) June 2, 2019
Not only do I think this is a poor mentality and he shouldn’t be saying that as a captain, I just think he’s wrong. Spurs have shown that they can beat anyone, if the club improves the squad with 2 or 3 players this summer, they are easily capable of being there again. Poor stuff— Harvey (@Harvey_1612) June 2, 2019
Lloris, who is on a £120,000-a-week deal (Spotrac), shares a great relationship with Pochettino, but Tottenham supporters have questioned whether he should be captain before.
Lloris is not the most vocal member of the Tottenham squad, and Harry Kane is often pointed to as the north London’s side true talisman.
