Lloris banned and fined for drink-driving

Lloris banned and fined for drink-driving

HUGO LLORIS looks set to keep the Tottenham captaincy despite his drink-drive conviction.

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.

Michel Vorm will deputise for captain Lloris, who this week pleaded guilty to drink-driving in London and was fined £50,000.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino supported his goalkeeper in the wake of his arrest, handing him the armband for the game at Manchester United, and has done so again, even though the full details of Lloris' crime were laid bare in court on Wednesday. That is important. And of course now it is a massive lesson for him, a life lesson. Like a man that he is, he is going to accept everything'. He said "Gaffer, I made a mistake".

Ahead of Saturday's important clash with Liverpool at Wembley, he said: "I am learning a lot, because we arrive after two weeks [of the global break] and we didn't talk too much about Liverpool, and the most important thing is the game on Saturday".

But the goalkeeper will miss Spurs' game against Liverpool on Saturday, with Dele Alli also ruled out as Pochettino has suffered a double injury blow.

The World Cup victor suffered the injury during August's win over Manchester United. "That is a massive lesson for everyone, he was the first to tell me he made a mistake".

'He already knew in the moment that it was a big mistake.

The Spurs captain has been with the club since 2012.

"I am disappointed", Pochettino added.

'And of course it's more complicated today to be a manager than 20 or 30 years ago'.

"He [Alli] suffered a small injury after 20 minutes of the game against Spain at Wembley", he said. "I played him many times when I was playing with Nice".

Not only does Hugo Lloris come up against the Premier League's deadliest strikers on a weekly basis, he also has to face Harry Kane every day in training.
