Captain of Club and country Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur. 

The World Cup and UEFA Nations League winner with France, has recorded a total of 395 appearances since his arrival from Lyon in 2012.

His words

“I feel really happy, obviously for me, but also for my family, to extend my stay in London and at Spurs for the next two years,” Hugo told SpursTV after putting pen to paper.

“I feel it’s a privilege to play football and to play for such a big club like Spurs. Also, the relationship with the fans is important for me. In the last few months, I’ve felt their support even more than before. So, the decision was really easy to take for me.”

He the first goalkeeper to keep 100 clean sheets for Spurs in the Premier League, and one of only 16 goalkeepers to reach a century in the history of the competition.

Lloris also added his goals for this season as well as his expectations under Antonio Conte.

Time under Antonio

“My wish is to become even more competitive and to close the gap with the best teams in England, and why not get back into the Champions League? This season, this is my personal target, to help the team and the Club to continue in that way, and to enjoy football.

“Now, it’s the beginning of a new process and hopefully, with the help of Antonio and his staff, with his experience, with his energy, with his discipline, we’re going to make something important for the Club.”

The Spurs captain has played one UEFA Champions League Final and one Carabao Cup Final with the Club.
