Lloris: I need more games

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes he still needs

to play more matches to fully earn the trust of manager Andre

Villas-Boas.

Lloris has made eight appearances in all competitions for Spurs

since joining from Lyon in the summer, but has started only twice

in the Premier League as he competes with Brad Friedel for the No.1

spot.

However, the France international has started all of Spurs’

Europa League games and earned the praised of Villas-Boas for his

performance in Thursday’s 0-0 draw away to Lazio.

“It was nice for me and for Tottenham to have got one point as

we aim for qualification,” Lloris told BelNSport1. “Personally I

did well.

“I try to do my very best, whatever the match or the opponent. I

still need to play more matches to get more trust.”

Spurs’ focus now returns to domestic matters and Lloris is

hoping for positive results from two games at White Hart Lane over

the next week.

He added on the club’s official website: “We wanted the three

points for qualification but it was a difficult game against a

great team in Lazio. They were very good, had lots of possession

and it was difficult for us to find any space.

“We didn’t play that well but sometimes when you play like that

it’s important not to lose, we did that, so that’s good for our

confidence.

“We now have two important home games against West Ham (on

Sunday) and Liverpool (next Wednesday) and we’ll have to be ready

for both.”
