Pochettino confirms Lloris will remain Spurs captain after drink-drive sentence

Tottenham Hotspur without Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris against Liverpool

World Cup winning goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will remain Tottenham Hotspur's captain when he returns from injury despite being convicted of drink driving, manager Mauricio Pochettino said today.

"If not, we're not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and we have ahead of lot of games to play". All that happened (in court) is not good and he does not feel great.

Son has endured a busy summer as he played for South Korea at the World Cup and then helped them to win the gold medal at the Asian Games, a tournament victory that ensured the 26-year-old would be exempt from military service. We need to try (to see) he understands he made a mistake.

"Rather than congratulate him and the club, people need to congratulate me and say thank you because I allowed him to go there and put his individual situation in front of the collective". I am not disappointed with him. "He is the first to tell me that he made a mistake, this is a lesson for everyone".

"He is close because I am happy with him", Pochettino said.


Ahead of Saturday's important clash with Liverpool at Wembley, he said: "I am learning a lot, because we arrive after two weeks [of the worldwide break] and we didn't talk too much about Liverpool, and the most important thing is the game on Saturday". The staff, the club, the fans, us, and he said "Any decision that you take gaffer, or the club, I think is fair".

Son gives Spurs another option in attack, while Pochettino defended Harry Kane, whose form has been criticised in a start to the season when the World Cup Golden Boot victor has seemed to lack sharpness. He has trained so hard and I am so happy with his evolution. We know that it's not a situation that worries us.

Pochettino was less illuminating about talk Toby Alderweireld may get a new contract.

"Hopefully, it will be OK and he will be available again soon, like Dele".
