Hugo Lloris is well on his way to becoming one of Tottenham's legends.
The French goalkeeper has just extended his contract for two more seasons, i.e. until 2024. Arrived in the London club in the summer of 2012, the goalkeeper of the Blues should thus pass the bar of 400 games under Spurs colors.
This news is not a huge surprise.
Negotiations have accelerated in recent weeks between management and the 35-year-old.
The arrival of Antonio Conte in November in a very complicated sporting period played the role of triggering element.
“Hugo is a Tottenham player, he is the captain.
He is the captain of the France team too.
We are talking about a world-class goalkeeper, the Italian technician said in December.
I think he wants to stay at his club, he likes the club.
Courted by other English clubs
Other Premier League teams, a championship that Hugo Lloris adores, followed the porter's situation.
OGC Nice, his training club, had in mind in particular to repatriate the doorman to his hometown next summer.
Last November, he confided his ambition intact in the columns of Parisian.
“I always want to hurt myself, to progress.
But I need, even more than before, to have this same requirement around me.
And for that, you have to stay at the highest level, he said.
Words that already hinted at his desire to continue in London.
“I like this daily life when we put the players in the best conditions, athletically, tactically and in terms of performance analysis.
Today, everything is in place for my development in the club or the national team, ”said Lloris.
