Lloris wants regular Tottenham run

Hugo Lloris has called for Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas to install him as the club’s permanent first-choice goalkeeper, the Daily Mirror has reported, after dropping Brad Friedel in favour of the France international for the weekend’s Premier League win over Aston Villa.

Lloris, who claimed he has gone from playing every three days at Lyon to playing three times in a month at Tottenham, added it is more difficult to train with little prospect of playing than it is to play a number of games in quick succession. The summer signing believes it is difficult to maintain the level of concentration necessary if you are not going to play, and also that it is impossible to improve as a player that way as well.


Friedel had previously played 310 league games in succession, a run dating back to 2004 when the former United States international was a Blackburn Rovers player. The Mirror believes Friedel is likely to return to the starting XI when Spurs meet Villas-Boas’ former club Chelsea in the first round of league fixtures following the international break.


Lloris said: “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 the truth is the game on the weekend. I was used to playing in games every three days with Lyon. And to progress, to be effective, it's better to play every week.
