World Cup victor Lloris 'completely drunk' at wheel

Share

France and Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris pleaded guilty on Wednesday to drunk driving charges and was fined 50,000 pounds sterling (USD 65,000) by the Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The injury ruled out World Cup-winner Lloris of Spurs' last game against Watford which they lost 2-1, as well as France's national team fixtures during the worldwide break.

Pochettino said: "He already knew that it was a big mistake".

Yet Lloris, who is out of Saturday's clash at home against Liverpool and will miss several weeks with a thigh strain, remains the Tottenham captain. It is a massive lesson for everyone. He made a mistake and is suffering, and is punishing himself. We are not God and cannot judge people.

Southgate believes that the 22-year-old, who has returned to Spurs for further treatment, should be able to feature against Liverpool this weekend.

The World Cup victor suffered the injury during August's win over Manchester United.

It seems likely both Spurs' captain and Alli will miss Tuesday's Champions League Group B match at Inter Milan too.

At least Son Heung-min is available again after helping South Korea win the Asian Games, which means he will be excused military service.

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

"[Dele] Alli is a bit unlucky, he suffered a small injury after 20 minutes against Spain", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

"I think it's so clear, not only in his case, in all the players that have different situations, we are so clear, the club is so clear, when something happens we are going to communicate the news as soon as possible".
