Bayern Munich stopper Manuel Neuer has told Football London that he felt sorry for Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris at the end of Tuesday night’s game.

Lloris was powerless to resist, as Spurs conceded seven goals against Bayern.

Neuer felt that there was little Tottenham’s captain could do with any of the shots that beat him.

And he admits that by full-time he actually felt bad for his opposition counterpart.

"I'm a little sorry for Hugo Lloris. He could do nothing and conceded seven home goals. It's bitter,” Neuer sympathised, after Bayern’s 7-2 win.

 

“What more can I say? He (Serge Gnabry) has done everything superbly.”

Scarily, Lloris actually pulled off some sharp saves for Tottenham during the contest, which stopped the defeat from behind any heavier.

Lloris had gone into the game against Bayern after making an awful error against Southampton in Tottenham’s last domestic game, which saw him come under-fire, but his overall form this season has been strong.

Lloris has been overworked in Tottenham’s goal this term, due to Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s defensive deficiencies, but he has generally performed well.

Lloris is set start again for Tottenham at the weekend when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion, as they look to bounce back from Tuesday night’s battering.
