Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (37, France), teammate of Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and captain of Tottenham Hotspur, will be out of power for at least six weeks due to a knee injury.
British media BBC said on the 9th, “Lloris will be out for 6 to 8 weeks due to a knee injury.”
Lloris suffered a knee ligament injury during an English Premier League (EPL) match against Manchester City on the 6th.
According to reports, Lloris avoided surgery, but after rehabilitation and treatment, he is expected to be out of action for more than a month and a half.
The absence of Lloris, the team’s main goalkeeper, is a fatal blow for Tottenham.
Currently ranked 5th in the EPL (39 points), Tottenham is competing fiercely to enter the ‘Top 4’. It is 1 point away from 4th place Newcastle (40 points). 스포츠토토
Furthermore, Tottenham is ahead of AC Milan (Italy) and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League round of 16 on the 15th and the 9th of next month.
There is a backup goalkeeper, Fraser Foster (35) from the England national team, but his game sense is so low that he only played in 4 games this season.
Meanwhile, Lloris is a player who has been active as Tottenham’s main player since 2012.
As the main goalkeeper of the French national team, he led the 2018 FIFA World Cup victory in Russia and the 2022 Qatar World Cup runner-up. Lloris announced his retirement from the national team after the tournament in Qatar last month.
