Lloris prefers the coach’s cavalier approach to football.
It’s an exciting time at Tottenham Hotspur currently and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris thinks manager Andre Villas-Boas is right to play a risky style.
Spurs were the biggest spenders in the Premier League this summer with over £107m of new talent being bought into the club.
Lloris – who arrived the previous year from Olympique Lyon – is now one of the more senior players at White Hart Lane and the 26-year-old thinks cavalier tactics are a good thing.
“Since my professional debut I’ve always had a risky game,” the France international was quoted by the Telegraph.
“When you say a goalkeeper has to be mad, you can have your personality off the pitch but if you have the competitive spirit, then you come on the pitch only to win.
“We have a philosophy which helps us to control the game.
“We want to have possession of the ball and for that we try to play very high and to keep the ball in the opponents’ half.
“Sometimes you need to take some risks but in the course of a season maybe you can lose one, two or three games because of counter-attacks but it’s a good way for us to play because we have the players to play that system.
“The manager has this philosophy and Tottenham has for a long time had the philosophy of trying to play well.”
As Lloris pointed out this style of attacking play can sometimes catch a side out, as was shown by Tottenham’s somewhat surprising 0-3 home defeat at the hands of West Ham United, in their last match before the international break.
That was only Spurs’ second defeat in the league though and with a plethora of new talent at AVB’s disposal, great things will be expected this campaign.
