According to Paul Robinson, Hugo Lloris merits a more favorable Tottenham Hotspur conclusion.
Hugo Lloris, the French World Cup winner, deserves a better ending after all he has done for the North London club, according to former Tottenham Hotspur player Paul Robinson on The Debrief.
Hugo Lloris had supported Tottenham for many years. The Frenchman, however, put up a poor performance during the previous season as he struggled with his form and conditioning and was unable to save a single match.
Naturally, Lloris’ future was in doubt with a new manager arriving this summer. Ange Postecoglou soon came to the conclusion that he needed to let the Frenchman go. Guglielmo Vicario, a native of Empoli, entered.
The Italian goalkeeper is off to a fantastic start in North London. Hugo Lloris was never better with the ball in his feet than he is now, and he is the ideal fit for the Australian manager’s tactical system.
Everyone anticipated that Lloris would go in the summer because the manager did not consider him for the first team. But surprisingly, he made the decision to remain, something many of us are still trying to understand.
Here is what Paul Robinson had to say about the circumstance of Lloris’ heartbreaking Tottenham exit.
Let’s get this straight here. All of us love Hugo Lloris. He has been our captain and leader for many seasons now and has time and again come up with important saves to help us stay in games that we might have lost otherwise.
However, it was very clear that Father Time was catching up with him and the club had a decision to make. They went for the more practical than emotional one and that’s how we have Vicario now.
One thing is very clear: there is no way back for Lloris at Tottenham. Let’s see if he ends up getting a move at least in January.
