Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris has said that his future at the White Hart Lane solely depends on that of his manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The 30-year-old France international has been a complete wall for the Lilly Whites this season and has managed to keep 10 clean sheets in 25 appearances. After a bit of hustle and bustle, Lloris finally signed a new contract with the club back in December which runs until 2022 and with this, he become one club’s highest earners.
Even though both Pochettino and Lloris are keen to stay with the Lilly-Whites, reports have emerged that Paris Saint-Germain are keen lure them in. Furthermore, the Argentine gaffer is also reportedly under the radar of Barcelona.
Lloris was asked about his future by Le Figaro, to which he said:
“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.”
Since joining the club in 2012, the Frenchman has made more than 200 appearances and is considered as one of the best keepers in the industry. Back in January, it was reported that Lloris was a subject of an interest from Real Marid, but nothing materialized. However, with the Galacticos keen on bringing a new stopper to replace Navas they are expected to try their hands on the Frenchman and the presence of Zinedine Zidane could play a big role.
Lloris further added:
“There are things you cannot refuse, but that does not mean I am desperate. There are some teams that demand admiration, they are monsters for what they have done in their past, and in 10 or 15 years they will win again.
“Tottenham is not a club that always wins, but we are trying to create something. It’s not easy to fight against European monsters but it is a motivation.”
