Spurs have entered the pre-season period with just one new face in the squad but Hugo Lloris believes that the arrival of Paulinho already highlights the club’s ambition. The Brazilian arrived after a successful Confederations Sup campaign and Hugo is sure he will make a positive impact.
“It’s a good thing for us to have a Brazil international in our team,” said Lloris.
“It shows that the club is still developing and improving because we can have now some great players like Paulinho.”
There may be nearly seven weeks to go before the summer transfer window closes but the new campaign is just a month away and the need for Paulinho to be joined by new faces may already have been shown up in that 1-1 draw with Swindon. Gareth Bale scored our only goal of the match but the Welshman will need better support from the strikers if we are to hit the top four.
“It’s nice to see him in good form,” Hugo added after Bale’s performance.
“But pre-season is long so we need to concentrate on our work. It’s good to see him but it’s just the beginning.”
As good as Bale is, half-witted accusations of Spurs being a one man team have already surfaced after the Swindon game but the signing of one or two strikers should quickly bring them to a halt.
