Jamie Carragher has claimed Tottenham need to move on from Hugo Lloris if they are to go to the next level, writes the TBR.
Lloris was at the centre of proceedings once again last weekend. His error allowed Callum Wilson to score the opening goal for Newcastle. And while there was some debate around if it was a foul or not, Lloris’ actions didn’t go down well.
And writing in his latest column for The Telegraph, Jamie Carragher has said that Spurs need to be looking to move on from Lloris soon.
“Despite his experience and medal haul, Lloris is not good enough to take Spurs to the next level and win the big trophies. He is a World Cup-winner but he makes too many errors and is not the same level as the best around,” Carragher wrote in The Telegraph.
“It is a position where I feel Spurs have been lacking for a while. Add the need for another centre-half – Clement Lenglet’s performance against Newcastle was poor – and Conte’s argument that he needs a few more transfer windows to assemble the squad to meet his objectives is correct.”
Lloris arrived at Spurs in 2012 for a fee that was said to be worth around £13m to Lyon. Since then, he’s amassed more than 400 appearances in North London.
