Tottenham goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris was rushed to a hospital today Saturday afternoon after injuring his arm in the third minute in the game against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex stadium.
The 32-year-old Frenchman came crashing after he tried to prevent Neal Maupay from scoring by parrying the ball into the path of the Brighton striker. In obvious pain, Lloris was treated for six minutes by medical staff before being taken from the pitch on a stretcher while being given oxygen.
“He is in the hospital now. There is no other news at the moment” said Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino. Spurs went on to lose the game 3-0.
“Hugo Lloris’ injury had massive impact on the game. It was so early in the game. To concede so early and losing our captain, it had an emotional impact on the team. We tried to find solutions, a different way to play but it was impossible. It’s a very difficult moment” Pochettino added.
