  • Tottenham boss Pochettino not ruling out new deal for Alderweireld

He is now out of action with a thigh injury sustained during his side's victory at Manchester United.

Lloris will miss the game against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday, as will Dele Alli, who picked up a hamstring injury on global duty.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino supported his goalkeeper in the wake of his arrest, handing him the armband for the game at Manchester United, and has done so again, even though the full details of Lloris' crime were laid bare in court on Wednesday.

Pochettino said that "of course" Lloris would remain captain, explaining: "He's the first that regrets everything". "He apologised to everyone - the staff, the club, the fans, us - and he said "any decision that you take gaffer, or the club, I think is fair".

Hugo Lloris on the other hand, is not injured, but was pulled over by police for driving while intoxicated about which the Argentinian coach stated: "He said he is sorry, anyone can make a mistake, he did it and he is suffering, he is punishing himself". But of course we're not God, that we can judge people.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of his sides Premier League fixture against Liverpool on Saturday, Pochettino was asked if Lloris would remain his skipper, to which he replied: "Of course". Only we need to try, how he understands that it was a mistake. We are disappointed because we're going to miss him for this game and possibly Inter Milan but it is not a big issue'.


"Different clubs didn't allow him to go and play in this tournament", Pochettino said, before joking: "Who took the risk?"

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my teammates, the manager and all of the supporters", Lloris had earlier said.

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions.

He told RMC Sport: "Do I have a return date?"

"Hopefully everything is going well and he can be back as soon as possible, like Dele".
