Hugo Lloris Tottenham’s captain suffers major injury blow

Following the season-ending injury to their club captain, Hugo Lloris’s supporters are getting ready to bid him farewell.

The goalkeeper moved from Lyon to Tottenham in 2012 for a rumored £9 million fee. And since then, he has become a cherished member of the squad. The club has seen the 2018 World Cup winner make 447 appearances in all competitions. In January he signed a new contract that lasts through the end of the 2023–24 season.

But he has also played a key role in his team’s inconsistent performance lately. They sputter to finish in the top four. The 36-year-old was ostensibly hooked by the interim manager Cristian Stellini at halftime after Newcastle was humiliated 6-1 after conceding five goals in the first half.

The Italian later acknowledged that Lloris’ replacement, Fraser Forster, was made because of a knee injury. And now Ryan Mason, who took Stellini’s place as acting boss, has provided a dismal update on his health.

During his press conference on Friday, he told the media, “Hugo’s out for the season; we’ve received the results. “Of course it’s disappointing, but to be honest, we initially anticipated that. He won’t play for us again this season, though, after some additional testing.

Mason was asked if Lloris had donned a Spurs jersey for the last time because this summer is the last opportunity for the North London club to demand a transfer fee for the 145-cap international.

He wouldn’t comment further, however, saying, “Listen, I can’t speak about next season, but what I will say is that he’ll play a key role for us until the end of this one. He is our captain, and we hope that he will play a significant role in the team.
