Lloris moved from Lyon to White Hart Lane on transfer deadline day but has only made one Premier League appearance as Brad Friedel keeps him out of the side.

While Deschamps insists Lloris, who saved a penalty against Spain in their recent World Cup qualifier, will continue to be his No.1 choice for France, he questioned why he moved to Spurs without first speaking to Villas-Boas and gaining an assurance he would be first-choice.

He said: "His situation appears to me to be incomprehensible.

"We are not talking about a young goalkeeper but a guy who has been the France keeper for several years, who has played dozens of matches in the Champions League.

"The problem is that he jumped on the train when it had already left the station and he did not start the season.

"The English league had started when he signed in August. The really important thing is that a player speaks directly with his coach and if Hugo had done that, maybe he would not have signed for Tottenham.

"But as for the French team, he is not in danger. He proved against Spain that he is a great keeper."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
