‘It’s a Shame’ – Pundit reacts as Tottenham finalise agreement for player exit

We’re delighted to welcome former Scotland right-back Alan Hutton as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium…

Hugo Lloris’ move from Tottenham to LAFC was “ideal for everyone involved”, Alan Hutton has said.

On December 30, Spurs announced that the France World Cup champion would leave North London after 11 years with the team to sign with LAFC, an MLS team.

During that period, Lloris made 447 appearances for the team, becoming a modern-day legend at Spurs and holding the captaincy for nine years.


There were plenty of rumours of a summer exit after Lloris announced an intention to move on and Ange Postecoglou brought in Guglielmo Vicario as his new first-choice shot-stopper.

Former Spurs defender Hutton, speaking to Tottenham News, is disappointed things didn’t end on a better note for Lloris but is happy a solution has finally been found for all involved.

“I think it’s a shame but there was a lot of pressure on him before when he was in goals with the mistakes and different things,” he said.

“He’d been at the club a long time, he was the captain. It is a shame how it’s ended because you don’t want to remember him for the end you want to remember him for what he’s done for the rest of his time at Tottenham.

The fact that he has remained there for this amount of time without playing is perhaps more surprising than the fact that he is going.

Thus, it seems likely that he would like traveling to Los Angeles at his age, and his family would be supportive. It’s best for all parties concerned.

In other Tottenham news, the team is getting ready to offer a Premier League opponent a player plus cash deal.
