Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain after drink-drive sentence

Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain after drink-drive sentence

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (65,000 United States dollars) and banned from driving for 20 months after pleading to driving while under the influence of alcohol.

However, Mauricio Pochettino's men seemed to struggle without their club captain against high flying Watford and now face a crunch match against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday. He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible. The most important is that everyone can make a mistake and he is suffering a punishment and also a feeling that society translates to him.

"And of course now it is a massive lesson for him, a life lesson". Like a man you need to recognise your mistake'.

The 31-year-old Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper was fined £50,000 (S$89,400) at Westminster Magistrates' court.

But Lloris's dream turned into a nightmare when his Porsche was pulled over for a routine stop in central London at 2:20am on August 24.

The Spurs boss said yesterday the France World Cup victor will remain as club captain despite his conviction this week and even though Lloris admitted he would understand if it was taken from him.


Manager Pochettino said: 'I think of course he is the first to regret about everything.

Alli, meanwhile, picked up a hamstring injury while away with England and had to sit out Tuesday's friendly with Switzerland.

"If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have ahead of lot of games to play".

"Hopefully, it will be OK and he will be available again soon, like Dele".

Pochettino said: 'Alli is a bit unlucky, he suffered an injury after 20 minutes against Spain.

Son gives Spurs another option in attack, while Pochettino defended Harry Kane, whose form has been criticised in a start to the season when the World Cup Golden Boot victor has seemed to lack sharpness. "I'm happy because the circumstances of the summer were so different from another season".
