The goalkeeper captained France to World Cup success earlier this summer
Hugo Lloris has committed his future to Tottenham by insisting he has many ‘beautiful years’ to come in north London.
Lloris, the Tottenham captain, recently skippered France to their second World Cup success, playing a near-perfect tournament until a mistake in the final that, thankfully, meant nothing.
The 31-year-old is about to enter his seventh season at Spurs, having joined from Lyon in 2012, and he remains one of the best glovesman in the Premier League.
He has made 254 appearances in total for the Lilywhites, but, Spurs fans will be glad to hear, Lloris has no plans to end his journey in north London any time soon.
Lloris visited his hometown of Nice as the France squad tour the country in the wake of their World Cup win, and he spoke at the city’s town hall about the appointment of Patrick Vieira as Nice manager, and whether he may one day ‘invest’ in the club at which he started his career.
As quoted by Sport Witness, Lloris said: “I’m extremely happy to see Patrick in charge of OGC Nice. I appreciate him as a person so much.
“I had this chance to be around him when I first started with the national team. He’s a huge player, and huge personality.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for Nice and for him to prove himself.
“As for my reconversion, we’ll wait a bit more.
“I still have beautiful years with Tottenham and les Bleus ahead of me.”
