For once, it looks like Spurs won’t lose their best player in the weeks leading up to a new campaign.
Tottenham announced Hugo Lloris has signed a new five-year-contract at the club on Thursday morning and the news has been welcomed by fans of the club.
Lloris told the Spurs website: “I spoke with the Chairman and I know the Club is as ambitious as ever,” said Hugo. “It’s very important to feel at home at a club and for my family to feel well. I enjoy a great relationship with the Club and the fans. The arrival of Mauricio Pochettino is important as well. I have a good feeling with him. He is also ambitious.”
“Everything is clear in my head and if I’ve signed a new contract it’s because I trust the Club and I’m sure we will progress in a positive way.”
“Last season wasn’t the season we all hoped for but we were still able to finish sixth in the league. We know where we have to improve, the Club also knows and there is a feeling and a confident connection between the Club and the players.”
