Lloris reiterates his Pochettino bond


Regular readers will no doubt remember a post where I boldly stated that Hugo Lloris was 99% certain to stay at Tottenham amid intense transfer rumours to replace David de Gea at Manchester United who was supposed to be leaving for Real Madrid.

As mentioned at the time and since, Hugo Lloris has a special relationship with Mauricio Pochettino, in him he found his footballing soulmate.

It has taken a while, but now non-readers are catching up with the new now our French international captain has told Le Figaro.

"My destiny is linked to Mauricio, it's a certainty. He matters a lot to me. Our relationship goes beyond football, it's a match, and one day he will be the best manager in the world. For me he is already. His presence and our relationship are the most important elements for me."

Because Pochettino is doing well at Tottenham the British press start linking him with the big clubs. Manchester United approached the Argentinian and John McDermott, head of coaching and development to join them at Old Trafford but both turned them down.

Since then he has been linked with Barcelona, who he can't really manager after playing and managing fierce rivals Espanyol and PSG. The French side don't really have much to offer apart from money as the French league is so uncompetitive. The press get excited but I don't think anyone else does.

What Lloris has to say may be new news to some but to the rest of us it is old news. It does remind us that we have the goalkeeping position covered while Pau Lopez develops with an eye to becoming our future number one.
