France goalkeeper Lloris pleads guilty to drunk driving, fined Dollars 65000

Grant SmithSep 15, 2018

The World Cup victor was stopped in his Porsche Panamera by police in the early hours of August 24 and provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal limit in England and Wales.

'He pleaded guilty and that is it.

Spurs fans will hope that their number one returns to club duty ready to display the kind of form that has earned him a place among the top 'keepers in European football, to help the team keep pace with the front-runners in the league. "I have no doubt about that".

On Wednesday, he was fined £50,000 and banned from driving for 20 months after admitting drink-driving.

"Of course he is the first to regret about everything".

Pochettino said that Lloris has beaten himself up over his mistake but deserved a second chance. Only we need to try (to ensure) that he understands that it was a mistake. "He knows only too well that it shouldn't happen, but it happened and it's not going to change what I think about him and the Hugo Lloris that I've always known", said Deschamps.

"He's the first [to accept it was a mistake], he told me, "Gaffer, it's a massive lesson for me".

It seems like that will be the end of Lloris' punishment, though, as Pochettino confirmed on Thursday that he would remain in his role as club captain after he expressed remorse for his actions. Tottenham will also be without Dele Alli after he picked up a hamstring injury on global duty.

While midfielder Alli remains sidelined by the hamstring problem he picked up in England's defeat to Spain, goalkeeper Lloris is out for several weeks with the thigh injury he sustained in Spurs' 3-0 win over Manchester United.
