Hugo Lloris confident of Tottenham return in January
Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris is expecting to return to action in January and is positive about his time away from football.
The 32-year-old dislocated his elbow in the 3-0 loss to Brighton in October and had to undergo surgery recently too.
Lloris is expected to be out till 2020, but the Frenchman is confident he will be back in January.
“Everything is well. There can always be hazards, but my goal is to be ready for January.
“Whether it’s the beginning, the middle or the end, I don’t know. In any case, I’ll take time to make sure I’m well healed and that I can come back in top form.”
The Frenchman added that he was using this time to “regenerate” himself. Lloris also was spending more time with his family and was looking forward to getting the right rehab too:
“I’m in good hands and we’re moving forward calmly. Everything’s been done as it should have been. Now, we have to focus on rehabilitation, strengthening, gradually gaining mobility and confidence.”
Lloris should take his time to return
The 32-year-old doesn’t need to rush his return as we have a decent back-up at the moment.
Paulo Gazzaniga was impressive in the previous campaign when he took over from Lloris. The Argentine has been good this season too and has put in some excellent performances too.
Lloris should only return to the side when he is 100% healed and ready for first-team action.
