Hugo Lloris has admitted Tottenham are “less likely” to win trophies than other clubs but insists that doesn’t affect his motivation.
Spurs haven’t won a trophy since the League Cup success of 2008 despite the common opinion that Mauricio Pochettino is the club’s best manager for many years – and the current group of players is the most talented for a long time.
The Londoners reached the Champions League final last season only to lose against Liverpool at the final hurdle, while they were also involved in Premier League title challenges in 2015/16 and 2016/17, missing out at the expense of Leicester City and Chelsea.
But Lloris, who was often linked with a move away from Tottenham before forming a strong relationship with Pochettino, remains happy at the club despite the lack of silverware.
“I am involved in a project and I know that I’m less likely to win trophies here than at another club, but that doesn’t stop me, far from it,” the Spurs skipper told L’Equipe (as relayed by Sport Witness).
It’s important to remember Lloris captained France to World Cup glory last year, which in some ways makes up for his personal lack of trophies at club level since leaving Lyon.
Still, it would be pleasing to see the 32-year-old taste some sort of tangible success before his time in north London comes to an end.
