Jose Mourinho has been handed a huge injury boost as captain Hugo Lloris has returned to training after a three-month absence.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper, who hasn’t played for Tottenham since suffering a dislocated shoulder in the opening stages of the 3-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion back in October, has resumed light training according to the Daily Mail, and is expected to return to full training with the rest of his team-mates in the next ten days if his comeback goes to plan.

Lloris will miss Tottenham’s Premier League games against both Liverpool and Watford – either side of the FA Cup 3rd Round replay against Middlesbrough – but the Frenchman will be targeting a return to first-team action for the trip to Aston Villa in mid-February or the Champions League first leg Last 16 game against RB Leipzig three days later.

The report from the Mail also says that Lloris has already begun ball work and contact drills with goalkeeping coach Nuno Santos away from the rest of the group.



  1. This isn’t the great news people think it is. Remember his form before he was injured? Remember how he got his injury? He picked up that injury making a mistake that led to a goal and it was just one in a long list of mistakes. I rated Lloris as one of the top keepers in the world up until a couple of seasons ago but like a few of our players, his form has long gone. We need a new Keeper as much as new defenders.

  2. Majority of his mistakes were trying to play out from the back. That’s changed since Jose has come in so hopefully those mistakes will be no more . COYS

    • Think keepers should be left to make their own choices of how to play the ball out ? I would like to think they know when to play out from the back or to play the long ball to their front men surely it’s The sign of a not so good keeper if you have to tell them how to play ?

  3. Seriously he’s a clown. Get rid before there are more howlers. He can’t even keep ball in play when he is kicking up field. Thinks he’s an attacker dribbling round defenders, then gives the ball to opposition. Joke
