Over the weekend, Téléfoot in France played a quick game of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ with Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris.
Fresh from the international break, the French goalkeeper managed to keep a clean sheet at the weekend as Tottenham beat West Ham 1-0, and it seems the 32-year-old is putting his past mishaps behind him.
First focusing on the World Cup the goalkeeper helped his country win this summer, Téléfoot asked Lloris if he still thought and dreamt about the achievement. His answer? “No.”
As for his mistake that led to Croatia’s second goal? Nope.
He also replied no to ‘Have you had a say in a player getting picked for France?’, ‘do you know when you’ll stop your international career?’, and ‘can you die peacefully having won the the World Cup?’, as there are ‘other goals as a footballer and a man’.
The subject of conversation then switched to Tottenham, and that’s when things got a bit more interesting.
First, playing it safe, Téléfoot asked him whether Spurs will finally be Premier League champions.
Lloris, in full professional mode, replied: “I hope so.”
Then came the transfer questions.
“Did you have offers to leave Tottenham after the World Cup?” they asked. Lloris: “No.”
And finally, “Will Spurs be your last club?”: “I don’t think so.”
Contracted to Tottenham until 2022, there’s still a while before a transfer is on the agenda for the now veteran goalkeeper, but there’s always been a sense that a return to France, at some point, could be on the cards.
Where to? He was born in, grew up in and played for Nice. Our guess is over there, if they’ll have him, of course.
