The goalkeeping saga draws on and after a string of reports suggesting that Hugo Lloris was happy to bide his time at White Hart Lane, the media is claiming a different story this morning.
Andre Villas-Boas called in Hugo to the starting line up for our win over Aston Villa but after declaring that the Frenchman wasn’t number one choice just yet, AVB recalled Brad Friedel for the match with Chelsea at the weekend.
Predictably, the papers are suggesting that Lloris is now looking for an early exit.
It’s not my motivation to be on the bench,” Hugo told the media in France. “I do not worry but I feel powerless, I want to play and I think I was brought to Tottenham for this purpose. I’m ambitious and I want to be on the pitch.
“I have respect for all the people in the club, but things are clear, I’m not here to live this situation any longer.”
The question seems to split fans down the middle but for you, is it a case of trusting Lloris now because if the Frenchman does leave, the club will soon be looking to replace 41 year old Brad and the search will begin all over again?
