Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris is desperate to win the Champions League to honour his “amazing” relationship with Mauricio Pochettino.
The France goalkeeper has been a key part of Spurs’ rise during the five years of Pochettino’s reign after being made captain.
He has been a lieutenant and leader on the pitch, while the Argentinian stood by his man earlier this season when Lloris was convicted of drink-driving.
Lloris showed his appreciation for his manager last summer when he gave him a replica of the World Cup trophy he won with France, a memento which currently resides in Pochettino’s office.
The 32-year-old is about to play another massive final as Spurs go for glory in the Champions League when they take on Liverpool in Madrid on Saturday and is driven on by his desire to repay Pochettino. “I’m really grateful.

I think in life or in your career there is always some amazing meeting in terms of person, and it’s been the case with Mauricio,” Lloris said. “And you know we are all ambitious and we are all working every day in the club to make history. “We could not do it before in the Premier League but we’ve done very well the last four years to reach the top four. “And we have a fantastic opportunity in the Champions League.
It’s the biggest trophy that you can win and when it’s in front of you you must do everything to get it. “And it’s even more when you do it with people that you really want to do it, with Mauricio.
It means even more. “It’s even better when the relationship is stronger and that is the case with my team-mates and with the manager and we want to do it together.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
