Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says his unusual season has helped him regenerate.

The 33-year-old keeper had just returned to the Spurs squad after a four month injury absence when the campaign was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It’s given the Frenchman, who welcomed his second child in September, much needed time away from the game.

Having been on the treadmill of professional football for 15 years, he’s come back refreshed and is ready to help Spurs achieve their goal of Champions League qualification when their season resumes on June 19.

Lloris said:

“The time off was very important to me to spend it with my family and then to rest my mind and body.

“Now step-by-step I’m trying to build a good level of fitness to be back with the team. I’m ready for the final stage of the season.”

Spurs will need to win the majority of their nine remaining games if they’re going to reach the Champions League places.
