Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has defended manager Mauricio Pochettino despite a disappointing start to the season which sees the club lie 12th in the Premier League table after 10 games, Sky
Pochettino was appointed in the summer to replace Tim Sherwood, who had parted company with Tottenham shortly after the end of last season after five months as Head Coach. The Argentine guided his new club to victory in their opening two Premier League matches, but they have only managed two more wins since and have lost four of their six home games.
This poor form has led to much disquiet among the Tottenham supporters, who striker Emmanuel Adebayor recently criticised for creating a negative atmosphere at White Hart Lane, as the club is forcing itself to play catch-up in the race for a place in the top four.
But Lloris, who signed a new long-term contract with Spurs in the summer, has offered his backing to Pochettino, saying: “I do not blame him. I trust the coaching staff and the current head coach. When it’s the third coach in a year and there are problems, the coach is not necessarily the problem. Nevertheless, we are working and trying to find answers.”
