Hugo Lloris set to REMAIN captain despite drink-driving admission

AFP | Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli are set for a spell on the sidelines

World Cup-winning France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (US$65,000) and banned from driving for 20 months for drunk driving.

In court on Wednesday, embarrassing details emerged as it was revealed how Lloris, while driving at only 15mph in a 30mph zone, dodged red lights and veered "towards parked vehicles" before being stopped by police in the early hours of Friday, August 24.

The Porsche "veered towards parked vehicles, almost clipping them, before correcting itself", said prosecutor Henry Fitch. They found vomit in the vehicle after stopping him. And the court said the France captain provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

Defending, David Sonn said Lloris' "spectacular fall from grace was not lost" on the goalkeeper.

"Just 40 days later, he was arrested". When asked whether Lloris had offered to give up the club captaincy, Pochettino said: 'He apologised to everyone.

"Drink-driving is completely unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it is not the example I wish to set".

"He's punishing himself. He feels so sorry and so bad because he knows that he made a big mistake".

The 31-year-old said: "Do I have a date of return?"

But Lloris's London club are now left to ponder what to do with their starting keeper after his conviction for a serious driving offence.

Spurs will be missing Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli for Saturday's Premier League clash against Liverpool at Wembley Stadium.

Lloris, of East Finchley, north London, signed for Spurs from Lyon in 2012, making 209 appearances in the Premier League and keeping 75 clean sheets.
