Hugo Lloris to remain as Tottenham Hotspur captain, says Mauricio Pochettino

Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain after drink-drive sentence Hugo Lloris to remain as Tottenham Hotspur captain, says Mauricio Pochettino
Frederick Owens | 15 September, 2018, 23:16

In court on Wednesday, embarrassing details emerged as it was revealed how Lloris, while driving at only 15mph in a 30mph zone, dodged red lights and veered "towards parked vehicles" before being stopped by police in the early hours of Friday, August 24.

"He pleaded guilty and that is it". There's no sense to take some decision like you suggested. "I have no doubt about that".

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for British road safety charity Brake, said it was disappointing to see a role model such as Lloris admitting to breaking the law by drink driving.

The Argentinian said: "He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it's maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best".

The head coach added: "Of course he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good".

"Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering". He has punished himself. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people. He understands that it was a mistake.

Speaking to the pre-match press conference, he said, "Alli has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but Tuesday's game will come too quickly". Like a man you need to recognise your mistake'.

"Like a man that he is, he's going to pay and accept everything". Will he remain as captain?

Dele Alli will also miss out tomorrow because of a hamstring injury he suffered playing for England last week, but Heung-min Son will be available again after his lengthy stint on worldwide duty with South Korea.
