Lloris: Tottenham can't get much worse

Hugo Lloris has lambasted Tottenham Hotspur for their season and said it is difficult to see how they can do any worse next year, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Lloris admitted that at the start of the season the club was targeting a Champions League place but were too sloppy to challenge. “I think all the players in the squad have the ambition to play in the Champions League,” Lloris said. “It is the ambition of the club as well. The fans expect this competition but we are in the Premier League and it is not easy to get a ticket.


“This season we had a good start, but after the defeat against [Manchester] City away we lost a bit of confidence,” he added. “After that we were in trouble, especially in the concentration. We conceded a lot of goals after individual mistakes and you know when you play against top teams it is too difficult to come back in the game


“When you play a team at the bottom of the league or the second half of the table, you have a chance to come back as we did against West Brom, as we did again against Fulham. But we have to improve, we know this season that the top-four, top-five teams were better than us so we have to keep working and hope to be better next season.”


Lloris was asked if he expects Tottenham to do better next season and was frank in his assessment. “I hope so. It will be difficult to do worse, especially against the top four or five teams.


“I mean, we conceded a lot of bad defeats. This season we had sometimes the feeling that we gave up. We can't allow this kind of behaviour. We have to show more character. I'm a competitor and I try always to do my best for the team. I want to see my teammates do the same.


“But football is not easy. It is a collective sport and we have to go all together in the same way. It's strange because we have a feeling that we can play at a very high level. But we can also play at a very bad level during the same game. It has put us in trouble a lot of times this season.”


Lloris has been at White Hart Lane since the summer of 2012, moving to the club from Lyon. He is the captain of France and has won more than 50 caps.


Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League, seven points adrift of Arsenal, who are fourth, with three games to play this season. They travel to Stoke on Saturday.
