The closure of the European transfer window has helped ease the mind of Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino who will now be pleased that he won’t be losing any players, at this moment in time.
Hugo Lloris has warned wantaway players that ‘no players’ are more important than the club as he admitted that he wasn’t prepared for the transfer drama that unfolded with a number of his Tottenham teammates this summer.
Mauricio Pochettino would have been the most relieved man in North London when the European transfer window slammed shut earlier this month because it meant that speculation about the future of his players would end, for now.
As reported by Football London, the likes of Christian Eriksen, Serge Aurier, Victor Wanyama, to name a few, could have all potentially departed, but in the end, nothing materialised.
Lloris made it clear that amid all the transfer drama, the club is the ‘most important thing’ as he stated that the players are now ‘focused’ following the closure of the window.
“I don’t know if I was [prepared], but you have to deal with it because it happens everywhere,” Lloris told Football London. “As a club, the most important thing is to be focused on your own days. The club is the most important thing.
“There are no players more important than the club. It is normal there were a lot of rumours because in the transfer window that happens. It happened to Tottenham, it happened to many clubs. But now the window has closed, all the players are focused and want to enjoy this season. They all want to give their best to enjoy another emotional moment this season.”
Lloris has been a regular for Tottenham for a number of seasons now, and he will no doubt be glad that the likes of Eriksen are still at the club.
When the Dane is at his best, he has proven time and time again, why he is one of the best players in the Premier League and how important he is in making Spurs tick.
On Wednesday night, though, he endured a difficult match as Spurs dropped a two-goal lead against Greek side Olympiacos in the Champions League.
