Hugo Lloris new deal speaks volumes about commitment to Spurs

Hugo Lloris's new deal speaks volumes about commitment to Spurs

Spurs goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris

Often described by many as a goalkeeper without weaknesses, there is no doubt that Hugo Lloris's contribution to Spurs' previous season went a long way to giving them their best defensive record in a Premier League season ever and also helped them secure a return to the Champions League. If you were one of the lucky ones who took the advice of top sports betting gurus like the guys over at http://www.schweizersportwetten.com, then this past summer you would of made a small fortune betting on Hugo leading his national side to the final of Euro 2016 on home soil, even if they did lose to Ronaldo’s Portuguese side in Paris in the end.

Hugo’s new Spurs deal extends all the way into 2022 and here’s why

The ever popular goalkeeper, who was nominated for the coveted Balon d’Or and captains both Spurs and France has just signed a deal with the club that runs all the way into 2022. Since joining from Olympique Lyonnais back in August 2012, a club where he won Ligue 1’s goalkeeper of the year three times, he’s made 189 appearances for Spurs in all competitions and last season played in 37 of the 38 Premier league games. He conceded just 35 goals also last season, earning them their best defensive record during their whole tenure in the Premier League. This also guaranteed them a Champions League spot this season. By these numbers alone it’s easy to see why Spurs are so keen to lock him into a long deal. It’s not all one sided however as Hugo Lloris is truly committed to the club and has his own vision of a stronger, more powerful Spurs team which is already starting to show its talent.

Of the recent announcement Hugo had this to say:

"That’s the way I show my commitment to the Club, to my team-mates and the gaffer and to show again how much I believe in this project and hopefully the best years are ahead...Step by step we are building a strong team, a strong spine and then we are making a competitive team for the future…It’s an interesting time with the new stadium so everyone at the Club is excited and hopefully we’ll continue our run in the league…”
