Tottenham star Lloris admits he considered leaving before this happened

Hugo Lloris

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted that he considered leaving the club before Mauricio Pochettino was manager but added that he is now happy.

Lloris said: “If I’ve ever considered a departure from Tottenham? The question, I asked myself after two years at the club, before meeting Mauricio Pochettino. PSG last summer? No, although I have a lot of respect for PSG. I am focused on the schedule of Spurs.”

Lloris signed for Spurs in 2012 and spent two seasons under Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood before Pochettino was appointed as manager of the club in 2014.

During the 2013/14 season after losing Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, Spurs ended up finishing in sixth position on the League standings and considering that he is a top keeper, the frustration that Lloris may have experienced is understandable considering that a keeper of his quality deserves to be playing in the Champions League.
