Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has given his full backing to his number one keeper Hugo Lloris despite recent mistakes. The French number one and World Cup winner has made some high profile mistakes this season and none more so than the one he made on Wednesday night.
Lloris came flying out of his area in the first minute of the Champions League game against Barcelona and watched in horror as the ball was passed round him and into the back of the net as the Catalans went on to win 4-2.
Asked if he still had total faith in his keeper Pochettino said: “No doubt. Who made the mistake?
“The first every day is me. Everyone can make a mistake.
“The reaction was fantastic and the performance was good, of course we lose the game but I think there’s no doubt about Hugo. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
“That has not changed. Nothing has changed in my mind, how I think about him.
