Hugo Lloris will learn 'life lesson' from drink driving charge - Mauricio Pochettino

World Cup-winning France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (US$65,000) and banned from driving for 20 months for drunk driving. Lloris has made 256 appearances with Tottenham since joining from the French club Lyon in 2012.

PREMIER League goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was found surrounded by vomit when he was pulled over for drink-driving, a court heard yesterday. There was vomit inside the auto and Lloris needed to be helped from the vehicle.

"Different clubs didn't allow him to go and play in this tournament", Pochettino said, before joking: "Who took the risk?"

"First of all I want to congratulate him, because it's such an important victory to avoid the military service", Pochettino said. "Because he is clever, he learns and now he is going to move on".

He said a taxi which had booked cancelled so Lloris made "the first of a number of unwise decisions" and chose to drive home.

"Of course we have a conversation and he explained what happened". We can all make mistakes. "I made a mistake and now I need to pay".

Mauricio Pochettino pointed the finger at his players after Tottenham's loss at Watford, but the FC crew agree he should be pointing at himself.

"And of course it's more complicated today to be a manager than 20 or 30 years ago".

It seems likely both Spurs' captain and Alli will miss Tuesday's Champions League Group B match at Inter Milan too.

In other team news for Tottenham, Juan Foyth returned to training last week after injuring his thigh, while Moussa Sissoko, out with a hamstring injury, is expected to get back to training next week. I am not disappointed with him.
