Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain

Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain

Lloris, who has endured a hard few weeks on a personal level after being fined £50,000 and receiving a 20-month driving ban following his pleading guilty to drink-driving, misses this weekend's game with a hamstring injury, while Alli suffered a knock during England's 2-1 defeat to Spain last weekend and misses out.

His teammate, Dele Alli, has also been ruled out of the Liverpool game after picking up a hamstring injury while on global duty with England.

The Spurs boss said yesterday the France World Cup victor will remain as club captain despite his conviction this week and even though Lloris admitted he would understand if it was taken from him.

The Argentine boss confirmed Lloris would continue in the role and again insisted the goalkeeper regrets the incident after he was banned from driving for 20 months on Wednesday and fined £50,000. Then we're all men and women and we can all make mistakes. He made a mistake and he's suffering all the punishment of society. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people.

"He said "Gaffer it's a massive lesson for me".

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris hasn't ruled out a return to action against Liverpool FC in the Premier League on Saturday.

"If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have ahead of lot of games to play".

Midfielder Moussa Sissoko will be another absentee for the Wembley meeting with Liverpool but, while Harry Winks could be in contention to start, his manager said the Englishman's ankle condition is "chronic". I am not disappointed with him. "I made a mistake and now I need to pay".

"He is going to do another scan to see how is the evolution of his injury", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

"I think it's so clear, not only in his case, in all the players that have different situations, we are so clear, the club is so clear, when something happens we are going to communicate the news as soon as possible".
