Lloris unhappy with Andre Villas-Boas

Hugo Lloris, Lyon goalkeeperFrance head coach Didier Deschamps has revealed that new Tottenham signing Hugo Lloris is unhappy with comments made by club boss Andre Villas-Boas.

The goalkeeper made a deadline day switch to White Hart Lane from Lyon, and is viewed as the long-term successor to Brad Friedel.

However, Villas-Boas has stated that the new signing is not guaranteed a first-team place automatically after moving to north London, which has apparently frustrated Lloris.

“Hugo has not appreciated the statements of his coach,” Deschamps told reporters at a press conference, published in The Guardian.

“I am not going to create a problem that I do not need today. But if it were to happen then it would need some consideration. I do not want Hugo to find himself in this situation.”

Friedel made a number of excellent saves in Spurs’ most recent fixture, a 1-1 draw with Norwich, and it remains to be seen who AVB will select between the sticks in the side’s next game after the international break.
