'He is a legend': Pierre Hojbjerg raves about 'fantastic' Tottenham teammate, says he's lucky to play with him

Tottenham midfielder, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been singing the praises of his skipper and goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris.

Lloris was once again in fine form as Tottenham saw off Fulham at the weekend and he produced a number of fine stops, despite Aleksandar Mitrovic beating him with a superb finish.

The experienced Frenchman is past the 400 appearances mark for Tottenham and speaking about his skipper, Spurs midfielder Hojbjerg admits he simply loves playing with him.

“I was joking in the changing room before I think they were showing on the screen up there was it five or ten saves from Hugo. Amazing. I remember playing against him for Southampton at Wembley and I took a shot and he tipped it onto the post and I was asking how it was possible,” Hojbjerg told Tottenham’s official channels.

“But he’s just doing it year after year. Hugo is not only my friend but he is a fantastic teammate and he is my captain. He is a legend and sometimes you are lucky to play with legends in your career and he is one of them. I hope in the end we can win something for him because he deserves it.”

TBR’s View: Lloris Remains Top Dog At Tottenham

To think there was a time when it looked like Spurs might move on from Lloris just a few seasons ago.

Since then, he hasn’t half proven his worth to the Spurs cause and he remains one of the very best goalkeepers in world football. He showed it against Fulham and he’ll no doubt continue to showcase his talents as the season goes on.

For Tottenham, they’re simply lucky to have such a stopper in their ranks. Lloris is already a club legend and when he does finally leave, Spurs fans will give him a huge send off he so richly deserves.
