Hugo Lloris; should he stay, or should he go?
What do you think of Hugo Lloris? He is now 34 years old and coming close to retirement. One such person who thinks he should stay is former Wet Spammerr, Frank McAvennie; he has said that hanging on to Hugo Lloris would be a smart move for Daniel Levy. There have been others, spurs legends, who have said the same. While other pundits have said that we should look to the future and a more younger model.
Lloris has been a good servant for us, even though he has made some howlers over the years. He has 12 months left on his contract, and there has been speculation that he wants to move back to France for his final years. But nothing is hundred per cent, as he hasn’t made anything public.
With the Spurs captain set to enter the final 12 months of his contract, there has been plenty of speculation about his future over the last few months.
It is believed that he has held talks with Levy about his future, and some have even said that he will sign a new contract, while others have dismissed such a notion.
If he was an outfield player, then question marks would be aplenty, however, in goalkeeper years, he can go well past his sell-by date. Just think, Pat Jennings.
These are the honours he has won in his football career
Coupe de France: 2011–12
Trophée des Champions: 2012
Football League/EFL Cup runner-up: 2014–15, 2020–21
UEFA Champions League runner-up: 2018–19
UEFA European Under-19 Championship: 2005
FIFA World Cup: 2018
He also picked up from his home country, the Knight of the Legion of Honour: 2018
The odd one out:
Just runners up medals from Tottenham, where, everywhere else he has been to, including playing for his home country, he’s picked up a winners medal, but that is the price for coming to Spurs. Just like Kane, nothing.
So, should he stay and never win another medal again, or should he go and win more trophies? The same dilemma goes for anybody else who wishes to play for us. Of course, it needn’t be that way. Now we’ve hit a low maybe Daniel Levy & Joe Lewis are re-examining their Spurs philosophy, and a new dawn is on the horizon?
What do you think?
All the best, Glenn
