Hugo Lloris ‘proud’ of Tottenham’s title run

France international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed that he was proud of Tottenham’s title run last season despite missing out on winning the Premier League.

Spurs came close to glory but suffered a dip in form right at the end of the season allowing Leicester City in to take the championship.

The North London based club ended up finishing the league in third-place but managed to book a place in the Champions League.

“It was a big and long season and unfortunately, without a trophy with Tottenham and France,” Lloris was quoted as saying by Goal [Via Mirror].

“But I can be proud to take part in Tottenham’s season and the French national team’s adventure.

“I hope it will give me more hunger for next season.”

Lloris also came agonisingly close to lifting the European Championship trophy with France this summer only to lose against Portugal in the final.

Second half substitute Eder scored in extra time to give Portugal a 1-0 win in their first ever European Championship triumph.

The Spurs number one keeper stated that he was disappointed with ending the season without a trophy but urged his teammates to keep their chin up and look forward to next season.

Lloris added: “You always need to look forward. It’s true that it’s a big frustration and a disappointment.

“But in football you always need to be positive and keep your chin up, especially when you’ve done your best.”

The experienced keeper has kept 57 clean sheets in 168 appearances for Tottenham in all competitions since joining French giants Lyon in 2012.
