Hugo Lloris has admitted that he is embarrassed of his image after being charged for drink driving.
The 31-year-old has been on something of a rollercoaster since lifting the trophy with Les Bleus in Moscow on July 15 and enjoying a victory parade back in Paris along the Champs Elysees.
Tottenham keeper Lloris found himself in the headlines for the wrong reasons just a few weeks later when he was fined £50,000 and banned for 20 months after admitting a charge of drink driving at Westminster Magistrates Court.
Meanwhile, a thigh problem saw Lloris sidelined from the end of August.
“It is pretty tricky and embarrassing,” he told Le Journal du Dimanche.
“This is not the image I want to give, but mistakes happen. It must not affect me as a man.
“It does not change who I am or the professional that I am.
“I have always devoted everything to football and respected what you have to do off the field.”
