Hugo Lloris: Says he hopes to build on his debut Premier League season

The 26-year old impressed after joining from Lyon last summer and eventually claimed the No.1 position from Brad Friedel.

Lloris soon became a fans' favourite at White Hart Lane but the France captain believes he can build on his experiences and continue to improve.

"I think it will be easier next season because I will have one season behind me, with one season of experience of the Premier League," he told the Tottenham and Wood Green Journal.

"This season was important for me because it was a new step in my career. I discovered a lot of new things and I really enjoyed my first season."

Lloris had to wait until October to make his Premier League debut and he says it was a frustrating period for him.

"It was maybe not easy at the beginning because the manager made the choice, which I respect," he admitted.

"But after that, when I got to play a run of games, it was better for me and now I really appreciate playing for Tottenham and playing at White Hart Lane with great fans.

"They travel everywhere, in Europe or in England, and I have a big respect for that - and I think all the other players do as well.

"I think there is a big communion in White Hart Lane between the players and the fans. We won a lot of important games this season, like against Arsenal and Manchester City, where we felt the power of the fans. It's a great feeling.

"I had a lot of good moments this season, I hope to have great moments in the future and I also hope to win trophies with Tottenham.

"It's very important for the club and also for the players and the supporters, to grow up together, and why not do that next season?"

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
