Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris says players must take the blame for poor start to the season

With Tottenham Hotspur having lost five of their 11 Premier League games this season, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says manager Mauricio Pochettino is not to blame, reports ESPN.

Lloris surprisingly extended his deal with the current strugglers recently, and has been one of the very few players performing to their best for the Londoners this season. He believes the players are to blame for the poor start, rather than new manager Mauricio Pochettino.

“When it’s the third coach in a year and there are problems, perhaps it’s not necessarily the coach that is the problem. Even so, we work, we try to find solutions. We are more on our own in London, where we are comfortable. We have to get ourselves out of that, because if we have to fight against relegation, comfort isn’t going to help us. It really worries me for the coach,” he said.

The former Southampton boss replaced the sacked Tim Sherwood this summer, but has endured a horrific start, losing four home games already. Lloris maintains belief he can turn the club around.
