Pochettino will ‘fight’ to keep Lloris at Tottenham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has stated that he will fight to keep star player Hugo Lloris at White Hart Lane.

The France international goalkeeper has been in stunning form in North London this season and is one of the best in Europe in his position.

As such, both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a move for the former Lyon custodian in recent weeks.

With Spurs set to miss out on Champions League qualification this season once more, the club could face a real struggle to keep Lloris ahead of next season.

Pochettino was asked about the Frenchman’s future at yesterday’s press conference and stated that he will do what he can to keep the stopper at White Hart Lane.

“In football it is difficult – if you sign the contract you never have the guarantee,” the Tottenham manager is quoted as saying by The Guardian.

“I have a contract or a lot of managers have a contract and there is never guarantee. But in football you never know. But it is true if I want some player to stay with us, I fight a lot.

“I think it is a rumour. I do not have any comment.

“I do not want to speak about rumours, about Hugo or other players. We are focused and we try to finish the season as best as possible. That rumour is impossible to stop.”

Lloris is being touted as a potential replacement for David De Gea if the Spaniard opts to return to his homeland with Real Madrid this summer.

Lloris is the captain of France and is surely eager to play in Europe’s top club competition.
