Being a Spurs supporter has not been easy for the past months! They definitely went from heaven to hell as they lost the UEFA Champions League Final to Liverpool.
Since that, the London club sacked their manager, lost both World Champion Hugo Lloris and Spurs’ captain Harry Kane for injury besides the terrible Football performed.
Not to mention the undeniable departure of one of the club’s best players, the midfielder Christian Eriksen, who’s on the verge of signing for Italian side Internazionale.
However, it seems like it’s not only bad news for the Spurs after all!
This Friday, the English club said that the French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris returned to training almost three and a half months after being injured in his left elbow.
Now coached by Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho, the Spurs aren’t on their best moment of the season and any exciting news is enough reason for celebration.
On October the 5th, still in 2019, in Tottenham’s 3-0 defeat at Brighton, the keeper dislocated and fractured his left elbow after falling badly in the first goal, which made him leaving the pitch on a stretcher and giving preoccupations not only to Pochettino, his manager at the time but also to the fans.
A month later, on November 7, the French international underwent surgical intervention, after it was discovered that his elbow remained unstable, and at that time he was likely to return to training in January.
Although he is already training under the orders of Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, Hugo Lloris should not be included in Tottenham’s squad for Saturday’s game at Watford, for the 23rd round of the Premier League.
This is not a complete problem as Paulo Gazzaniga, his substitute during these 3 and half months is doing a good job in Tottenham’s goal.
The goalkeeper’s return to the French national team is expected to take place in friendly matches scheduled for the end of March against Ukraine and Finland, three months before the Euro 2020.
Lloris is one of the captains of both Tottenham, the club he has represented since 2012, and the French national team, for which he was crowned world champion in 2018, in Russia.
For the English club, he has already played a total of 246 matches, and there are surely many more to come.
Lloris’ return is surely a massive plus for Spurs, mainly for the squad. However, due to Gazzaniga’s good performances, he will have to fight back for his place under the posts for the London club.
