Former Manchester United and France goalkeeper Fabien Barthez has blasted Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas over his treatment of Hugo Lloris.

The goalkeeper completed his move to White Hart Lane but the Portuguese boss kept faith in 41-year-old Brad Friedel, who has been in good form this season.

“Lloris is one of the five best goalkeepers in the world,” Barthez told Le Parisien. “He is faster than Friedel, he jumps higher and he is very strong mentally.

“What is happening now is incomprehensible, but I’m not concerned. He will become the centre-piece of the club. Hugo is a calm guy, a good worker. Tottenham will not let him stay on the bench for a long time.”
