Hugo Lloris has said that his relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino comes once in a lifetime and that it is the main reason he is still at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Tottenham and France captain has signed two long-term contracts since Pochettino’s appointment in May 2014, the latest a three-year extension until 2022 in December.
Lloris, 30, is still yet to win a league title in his career, and he admits that Pochettino, whom he has described as the best manager in the world, has kept him from joining one of Europe’s elite clubs.
“The main reason is Mauricio Pochettino. That’s the truth and I cannot hide that,” Lloris told ESPN FC at the club’s training base during an event with Kumho Tyres, Spurs’ official tyre partner.
