Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is now loving life at Spurs, after a difficult start to life at White Hart Lane.

The France captain started his career in north London as second choice to Brad Friedel but now has the number one jersey to himself.

“I have fun every day. I’m here to improve and push myself in a different context. It’s important in sporting terms, but also personally,” he said. “A goalkeeper has to be the master of his penalty box, even if it’s trickier here than elsewhere.

“You always have two men blocking your path at corners. That’s part of English football. You have to accept it, and make the right decisions, even if things happen quickly. It’s difficult to hold balls because there are so many people, so it’s better to punch. You have that same battle everywhere, but in England it’s true that you’re a little less protected than elsewhere.”
