Tottenham should not throw philosophy ‘in the bin’ after Champions League defeat, says Lloris
Hugo Lloris does not think Tottenham need to abandon their philosophy just because they lost the Champions League final.
Spurs’ biggest ever match ended in a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in Madrid, with Mohamed Salah’s early penalty and a late Divock Origi strike doing the damage on Saturday.
However, simply reaching the showpiece event was an impressive achievement for Spurs, given they have not bought a player since January 2018 and have battled against some difficult circumstances this season.
Lloris is a big ally of Pochettino, who stood by his captain after a drink-driving conviction last August.
Pochettino has not done much to guarantee he will be at the club himself next season, even suggesting he could take a sabbatical, while also rejecting the chance to quash speculation linking him with the Juventus job.
