Lloris strives for Spurs success

13 September 2012 11:21
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes he has a lot to prove in England following his £12million move from Lyon on transfer deadline day. The 25-year-old completed his move hours before the transfer window closed but has yet to feature as Brad Friedel continues to be the preferred choice of manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Villas-Boas has revealed Friedel, 41, is his first-choice but Lloris reckons it is too early to make that call as he looks to adapt to the Premier League. "It is too early to reply to this type of question," he told The Mirror. "I have enjoyed being with the national side and now I am going to discover another world, another championship and another mentality.

All that is positive and I am going to get to know my new team-mates and staff and I am going to work as well as I can." Lloris captained France to a 3-1 win over Belarus on Tuesday and also saved a penalty and is now ready to make a name for himself at White Hart Lane. "Today I have a status - I have the France captain's armband. It is a mark of trust and respect," he added.

"There are a lot of things for me to prove over there. I am going to strive for success."
