A little earlier in the day on Monday, Hugo Lloris announced his international retirement during an interview with The team. Also a guest on the 20.00 news regarding TF1, the Tottenham goalkeeper returned to this hasty retirement with the French team he captained. Although his announcement was more or less expected by Blues observers, it still had the impact of a bombshell. The 36-year-old took the opportunity to reflect on the fateful penalty shootout against Argentina in the World Cup final in Qatar.
During his interview with our colleagues from the French sports daily, Hugo Lloris actually returned to this very special session for goalkeepers. “Actually, there are things I don’t know how to do. Fooling around in the goal, apparently destabilizing the opponent by playing with limit, I don’t know how to do that. I’m too rational, too honest to go into that area.” said the Spurs goalkeeper in particular. A spade for Emiliano Martinez, the Albiceleste’s last violence? Of course, but we’ll let you judge for yourself.
