Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted that he thought about leaving White Hart Lane, but the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino convinced him to stay.
The France international is widely recognised as one of the best stoppers in the Premier League and makes fantastic saves every week to make Spurs an even tougher team to beat.
Lloris has played his part in the North London club fighting for the Premier League title this season, with Pochettino’s side having the most miserly defensive record in the division.
With Spurs missing out on Champions League qualification in recent years, the France national captain was being touted with a move elsewhere.
However, the former Lyon custodian has confessed that Pochettino has been a key reason in keeping him at White Hart Lane.
“I had concerns and was questioning myself two years ago, after Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood had been in charge, but the first meeting with Mauricio Pochettino was very clear for me and my future,” The Telegraph report Lloris as saying.
“I trusted him from the first second I met him. I really understand what he wants, fully agree with his football vision. We have the same football view.”
Lloris is set to be in goal as Spurs face West Brom at White Hart Lane on Monday night, in a clash they must win to keep their title dreams alive.
