Villas-Boas hails quality of Lloris

Published Add your comment

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has hailed the quality of Hugo Lloris ahead of what is expected to be the Frenchman's debut in Thursday night's Europa League clash against Lazio.

Lloris and Villas-Boas have had a rocky start to their relationship at Spurs, with the latter's public show of support for Brad Friedel said to have disappointed the £8million deadline day signing from Lyon. Villas-Boas opted to stick with Friedel for Sunday's victory over Reading, but the 41-year-old is likely to start the Group J clash on the bench.

"The first two days after the international week (and before the Reading game) were more like recovery days for him," Villas-Boas said of the 25-year-old. "The only thing we can say is that his talent is immense and easily visible from the time he has trained with us."
