Hugo Lloris hoping for run in the team

Hugo Lloris, Tottenham HotspurTottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has stated that he hopes he now gets a run in the Spurs team, and can become the club’s first choice between the sticks.

The France international moved to White Hart Lane in the summer from Lyon, but has had to bide his time as Brad Friedel has continued to impress for the north London side.

Lloris got his first Premier League start against Aston Villa in a 2-0 win on Sunday, and is now keen to be trusted by Andre Villas-Boas.

“I was used to playing every three days in Lyon,” he is quoted as saying in The Telegraph.

“Necessarily, to progress, to be effective, it’s better to play every week with his team. I hope to play more and more to be at my best. When you sign at the last minute, it’s never easy. I still need a few games to find the rhythm.

“Over the past month, I’ve played only three games. It takes a little more concentration, especially working at training. I try to compensate but what matters is the game at the weekend.

“It was an important game for me, an introduction to the Premier League after three to four weeks of waiting and working. Whether with Brad, goalkeeping coaches or even with the manager, everything has gone well,” he concluded.

Lloris is currently on international duty with Les Bleus.
