Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is set to be on the sidelines for a number of months now following his injury against Brighton last time out.

Tony Cascarino has slammed Hugo Lloris' abilities on the ball as a goalkeeper and compared the Tottenham Hotspur man to Thibaut Courtois, who left Chelsea last summer. 

Former Millwall striker Cascarino was adamant that Lloris, just like the now Real Madrid shot-stopper, Courtois, don't have great feet movement. 

Lloris is currently facing a spell on the sidelines because during Spurs' last game - their 3-0 defeat at Brighton - he made a mistake, which led to the opening goal and him injuring his elbow. 


Nonetheless, speaking to The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSport (09/10/2019 06:00 am), Cascarino shared why he isn't such a fan of Lloris. 

"I have never been a fan of Lloris," Cascarino told TalkSport. "I think he's a great shot-stopper. He makes certain types of saves. He's not good with his feet. And he can sometimes make horrendous errors. He did one in the World Cup final, but he has won the World Cup.

"His last mistake, where he gets injured, he tried to catch the ball, fell into the goal and realised he's going to carry the ball into the goal. If you're not good with your feet, in terms of feet movement, you're not going to be a very good goalkeeper. There was a goal against Bayern Munich, where Lloris has been beaten, he hasn't used his feet to get across and the ball has been wiped in one way, and then comes in and gone into the far corner. I think it was the second goal. It's a goal I think he needs to save. 

"I don't think Lloris has got great foot movement. I don't think Courtois when he was at Chelsea, had great foot movement - Lloris has struggled with that."

Well, Lloris will be out of action for Spurs until at least the end of the year with an elbow injury, as reported by BBC Sport.

In recent seasons, Lloris has had a habit of having an error or mistake in his game, which has not helped his cause or Tottenham's cause. 

Either way, Lloris' main concern now is to get back to full fitness and then come back and prove his worth once again.
