White Hart Lane ace critical of team-mates’ attitude.
Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has had a dig at some of his team-mates at White Hart Lane, suggesting they are ‘too comfortable’ with life at the club, according to Goal.com.
The French international shot-stopper has moved to back his struggling manager Mauricio Pochettino after some poor results this season, with the Argentine failing to make the desired impact at the club since his summer switch from Southampton.
Pochettino has come in for some criticism from fans and pundits alike for the team’s displays, but Lloris believes it is not the manager’s fault and that some of the players at the club need to improve their approach to the game.
The 27-year-old added that at his previous club Lyon there was more pressure to perform and deliver results, saying that some of the players at Tottenham could benefit from living less comfortably.
“I trust the staff and the coach,” he said.
“When it’s the third coach in one year and there are problems, the coach is not necessarily the problem. We’ve been working though, trying to find solutions.
“I’ve known times like this at Lyon but, there, there was a real pressure every day and there was crisis management. In London, we’re a bit more on our own, comfortable. We have to get out [of this comfort] because, if we ever have to fight against relegation, being comfortable won’t help us.”
Lloris signed a new five-year contract to commit his future to Spurs back in July and has been one of the team’s best players in the last few seasons, establishing himself as a top class Premier League goalkeeper and attracting some rumoured interest from bigger clubs around Europe.
