Manager Mauricio Pochettino demands more desire as Tottenham prepare for Liverpool

15 September 2018

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris reportedly offered to quit as captain following his drink-drive charge, but Mauricio Pochettino has told him to keep the armband. He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (65,000 United States dollars) and banned from driving for 20 months after pleading to driving while under the influence of alcohol.

He added: 'Of course he's the first that regrets everything and all that happened yesterday is not good. Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering. We are all not sure yet the people from last season. We all need rest.

"It's a massive lesson for everyone".

"Like the man that he is, he's going to pay and accept everything".

According to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, Alli suffered the injury during the early stages of England's UEFA Nations League clash with Spain but still played every minute of the 2-1 defeat.

It is expected to strike the nation later in the night itself over the extreme northern parts of Philippines, possibly over Luzon. Storm surges of up to 7m are expected to hit coastal areas, it said, while heavy rains could trigger landslides and flash floods.

Lloris, along with Dele Alli, is injured and will miss the visit of Liverpool to Wembley tomorrow, but the French World Cup victor will resume the club captaincy when he comes back.

"We started the season with good results, but we knew the circumstances and the reality after the World Cup were completely different".

"Last year we made it too easy for them", Klopp said.

One suggested source of Kane's relative struggles is his quick return from an ankle injury back in April but Pochettino insists he is satisfied with the contribution of a player who is perhaps a victim of the high standards he has set for himself. Don't worry for me - we need to be anxious for the real things.

Forward Heung-min Son is available, but unlikely to play a big part after participating in the Asian Games, immediately followed by this global break.
