Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Hugo Lloris will continue as club captain despite his run-in with the law.
The Spurs No.1 has also been sidelined for the next few weeks with a thigh injury sustained in the win at Manchester United last month.
Speaking about the Frenchman, ahead of this weekend’s clash with Liverpool at Wembley, Pochettino said: “He is the first to regret about everything and all that happened is not good, he doesn’t feel great.
“He said he is sorry and he is a man and accepts his mistake.
“Everyone can make a mistake, he made a mistake and he is suffering. He is punishing himself. That is a massive lesson for everyone, he was the first to tell me he made a mistake.”
When asked if he would stay on as captain, he said: “Of course.”
