Spurs keeper Lloris banned from driving

Spurs keeper Lloris banned from driving

The Frenchman, who now has a thigh injury, was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months for the offence which occurred in August.

The 31-year-old already missed out on the Premier League game at Watford on the 2nd of September and both of France's matches during the worldwide break. He will miss the game against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, as will Dele Alli, who picked up a hamstring injury on worldwide duty.

"Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering". We are not God and cannot judge people. He's a man. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.

"He's the first [to accept it was a mistake], he told me, "Gaffer, it's a massive lesson for me".

It seems likely both Spurs' captain and Alli will miss Tuesday's Champions League Group B match at Inter Milan too.

Foyth has now returned to training, however, but Sissoko is not expected to resume training with the group again until next week. Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, one target to evade Pochettino, might have been a stand-in for Alli.




Some fans and pundits called for Lloris to be stripped of the Spurs captaincy following his guilty plea, but Pochettino does not feel it necessary to take the armband off him.

"[Dele] Alli is a bit unlucky, he suffered a small injury after 20 minutes against Spain", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions.

He told RMC Sport: "Do I have a return date?"

"I'm not disappointed with him", he said. He has trained so hard and I am so happy with his evolution. We are in a situation that is under control.

"Hopefully everything is going well and he can be back as soon as possible, like Dele".
