Danny Murphy said on the Jim White show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (10:25am, June 3, 2019) that Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was being “remarkably honest” when he made some rather controversial comments following the defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final at the weekend.
Tottenham went down 2-0 to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the final of Europe’s premier club competition in Madrid this past Saturday evening.
The France international, though, did outline the improvement the North London outfit have made in recent years, and he also made it clear that Spurs are ambitious.
Some Tottenham fans were not happy with Lloris’s comments and criticised him on Twitter, as reported on HITC Sport.
Former Tottenham and Liverpool midfielder Murphy has given his take on Lloris’s comments.
Murphy said on the Jim White show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (10:25am, June 3, 2019): “He was actually remarkably honest because they are not really expected to be in the semi-finals or final of the Champions League or pushing for the title season in season out. They are not there yet.”
Tottenham finished in the top four of the Premier League this season and will feature in the group stage of the 2019-20 Champions League campaign.
