[Hugo Lloris comments on Fabian Barthez’s comments who says he was a better goal keeper than Brad Friedel] The choice lies with the coach but I’m here to shake things up a bit. I’m not worried, if Tottenham came looking for me at Lyon, then surely I will play a part in the future of the club. I just hope that I get the chance to play. To get a bit of playing time (against Lazio) while I’m still settling in, getting to know the club and my new team-mates, that can only be a good thing

[Spurs would have taken all three points had referee Ovidiu Alin Hategan not ruled out what looked to be two legitimate goals from Steven Caulker and Clint Dempsey] We wanted to win this game and maybe we were not lucky this evening,’ Lloris said. ‘I think we had one or two opportunities to open the scoring and the referee took his decision. We played a great game today but Lazio played like a typical Italian team away from home. They wanted to defend and that made it difficult for us. But now we have to continue to work hard because we want to win the next game in this competition

[Hugo Lloris explains what Cristiano Ronaldo means to many fans around the world] He is an inspiration for the new generation, a machine of success with individual trophies and collective success. He is a great leader and a great personality too

[Hugo Lloris on team-mate Paul Pogba] He has this desire to shine with the French national team. Will he be the ‘boss’? That’s a strong word but a ‘leader’ is what is expected of him on and off the field. He is reaching maturity and he wants to do well. But it’s also important that he focuses on his individual performance. This is the best way, to lead by example

[Hugo Lloris has labelled Thierry Henry one of the great gentlemen of French football ahead of what promises to be an emotional World Cup semi-final for the Arsenal great in St Petersburg] I was lucky to play with him for two seasons in the French team. He’s was a great player and a great gentleman of French football. It is true it is a little bit peculiar to see him with the Belgian team. But that is his career and now he is learning for his future career. I think his heart will be split because before everything he is French. He has lived through great moments with the blue jersey – he has the record of goals scored and the second most caps. He left a mark on the history of Les Bleus. He has a great passion for football. He will be with the Belgians and do everything to help his team

[Tottenham’s trip to Ajax] Ajax have got a little advantage from the first leg. We have to deal with that and the only way to do it is to win the game. We have to try and find the right energy, put intensity in our performance and learn from the first leg where we didn’t make the game that we expected or we wanted. Tomorrow is another chance for us to compete and to play for the final of the Champions League

[Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris aims to be back playing in January following suffering a fractured elbow during a 3-0 loss to Brighton last month] Everything’s well. There can always be hazards, but my goal is to be ready for January. Whether it’s the beginning, the middle or the end, I don’t know. In any case, I’ll take time to make sure I’m well healed and that I can come back in top form. I’m also using the time to regenerate myself. I’ve never been away from the pitch for so long, so it’s something new, but I’m treating it positively. I’m using this period to spend time with my family and my children. I’m in good hands and we’re moving forward calmly. Everything’s been done as it should have been. Now, we have to focus on rehabilitation, strengthening, gradually gaining mobility and confidence

[Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has said that the mission of Jose Mourinho at the club is simply to win a trophy] He’s got a specific mission, which is to get what we lack: a trophy. We want to continue with what we’ve done in recent years, playing magnificent football, getting close to some of the greatest teams, but without rewards for our efforts. At the same time, I have always thought since I was 17 that the influence of the players is the most important thing. That stopping the negative spiral depends on us

[Lloris has not had the chance to feature under Mourinho due to a dislocated elbow sustained in a freak accident against Brighton] I had never felt pain like it. I think the morphine took a long time to work and I’m not sure the gas I was given when I was on the pitch worked. I was only relieved at the hospital

The idea is to be back by the end of January but that’s conditioned by how I feel and the choices of the coach. All matches are important and the team is not where it would like to be. So you have to think carefully: I will have to be 100% to come back. The luck that I had is that it could have been much more serious. If there had been a fracture, perhaps the question of missing the Euros would have arisen. There was also no damage to the nerves: just a ligament and some muscle tears. But it still took three good months

I’ve always had a side to me that’s a daredevil. It’s not conscious. I always liked to dive headfirst, I always looked for the thrills. So it will come back on its own. I’ve quickly regained confidence in my body

[Tottenham Hugo Lloris dismisses rumours of squad unrest under Mourinho] The atmosphere is great. I can tell you all the players are ready to fight for the new manager and his staff

It’s not easy to come in the middle of the season, but it’s a great opportunity for us. Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world and the most successful manager of the past 20 years. As a player, I can say he’s a fantastic coach. He’s here to help us but at the same time we need to give everything to him and his staff

[Hugo Lloris, who saved Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty in the first half when the game was goalless, was also impressed with how quickly Bergwijn has settled in at the club] What a goal, what a start. It’s not easy to come from a different league into the Premier League in terms of intensity, and to start against Manchester City, he did well, and he was decisive. It’s going to help him to get into the team, to get into the Club, even the relationship with the fans here is going to be even greater in the future. But he couldn’t start in a better way

[Lloris admits Spurs need to show more after Burnley draw] All the players were angry with the first-half performance. We could talk for many hours about what happened, but we have to show more. We have to stay positive and in the second half we could have won it. I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and the end of the season, but we have to keep faith. We have stopped the negative run, but it’s not enough because we wanted to win

We’ve had a very difficult season. We had a bad start, a new manager, a lot of injured players and you can feel that things are against us. You can see players fighting and giving their best. The confidence is not right up there. But we are working to finish the season as well as we can

[Lloris: It’s a privilege to work with Mourinho every day] He’s great. He’s a character. So of course, through the media, you can have preconceived ideas, but when you get in touch with him on a daily basis, inside a training centre, I think it’s a privilege. He’s coached so many great teams, so many great players. He’s got a lot of experience and a lot of trophies in his cupboard. When you’re a player, I think it’s a chance to be at his side because there’s so much to learn

[Lloris: It would be cruel to deny Liverpool the title] We are in a situation where everyone wants to finish and have the verdict of the field. It would be terrible if everything ended like that nine days before the end of the Premier League. It would also be cruel for Liverpool with the lead they have. They are almost champions. As with everyone, there would be a taste of unfinished business. In addition, we are entering the most exciting period, the most beautiful moment of the season. Nobody wants it to end like this

[Lloris admits playing behind closed doors would not be ideal] It will be weird wherever it happens. Football is not a sport behind closed doors. Without spectators, it is not the same discipline. This is not how I see football. We are here to gather, share our emotions. We all want full stadiums, with atmosphere, fans, colour and songs. But here, we must take the context into consideration. There are major and economic issues that need to be understood at the level of clubs and federations. Everyone has to find the right compromise between health above all else and the need to finish this season

[Spurs captain Hugo Lloris concurs with Winks but also feels a compromise will have to be reached due to the economic pressures that the lockdown is placing upon clubs] It will be weird wherever it happens. Football is not a closed-door sport. Without spectators, it is not the same sport. This is not how I see football. We are here together, to share our emotions. We all want full stadiums, with atmosphere, fans, colour and songs. But we must take the context into consideration. There are major economic issues that need to be understood at the level of clubs and federations. Everyone has to find the right compromise between health above all else and the need to finish this season

[Hugo Lloris says Tottenham have no margin for error if they are to claim an improbable Champions League place when the Premier League season resumes] We have to be honest, we are not in a good position at the moment. Four points to Manchester United, seven points to Chelsea. We don’t have the right to lose games. Even more when you face a direct opponent like Manchester United. We are going to start again with a very important game, maybe a decisive game for the future. About the title, it’s almost done, but for the fourth place, or the fifth place, there will be a big battle and for the relegation, it will be an even bigger battle. There is a lot to win and to lose in these nine games. It’s the final sprint, you can win or lose everything

[Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says their struggles this season stem from their inability to recover from losing the Champions League final to Liverpool] There is a risk when you go over your potential. Last season, we went on an incredible run in the Champions League and we finished the season on our knees. You don’t have time to recover from one season before you have to start a new one. And then there was the accumulation of things that provoked the situation and then a lot of injured players, the change of manager. It’s difficult to stay stable and to be always looking at the top

There is sometimes one season when everything goes against you. Maybe the consequence when you play four years making a huge effort to compete with the top teams and finish in the top four [every season], it’s a lot of accumulation and one season there is everything you cannot control. It can happen

We are more or less all fit and this is a big difference. We’ve been quite unlucky in terms of injured players. It affected us a lot. So it’s like a new season that is going to start. The feeling is getting there. It is only a question of time, a question of confidence too, because the only way to get better is to win games and keep winning. This is the only feeling that will help the team to improve and to reach the level we all expect

[Hugo Lloris believes last season’s Champions League final heartbreak] Wow, it’s difficult to explain. Last season, we went on an incredible run in the Champions League and we finished the season on our knees, and you don’t have time to recover from one season before you have to start a new one

There was the accumulation of things that provoked the situation, and then of course a lot of injured players. The change of manager. It’s difficult to stay stable and to be always looking at the top. There is sometimes one season when everything goes against you

It’s like a new season that is going to start. It’s true to say we were not at our best, but it belongs to the past. The team will look different to a few months ago. We are more or less all fit, this is a big difference. He [Kane] is ready. In his mind he is ready and that’s the most important thing. He recovered very well from his bad injury and he is the one really looking forward to getting back into the competition. Everyone knows his targets, his ambition and his willingness to win. We all need the repetition of games to reach our best level, but that is going to be the case even for the opponents we are going to play. Harry is in a good place and just waiting to start the season again, like all of us

[Lloris plays down clash with Son] It just belongs to the changing room. Outside you can say whatever you want. There is a lot of respect between all the players. What happened between me and Son is just something that is part of football sometimes, but there is no problem at all. You can see at the end of the game we are more than happy to be part of the team and to have the three points. To concede a chance six seconds before half time because we don’t press properly. It annoyed me but it’s part of football, no problem, we move on.
