Mauricio Pochettino says Hugo Lloris will learn from his chastening "life lesson" and has no concerns that his goalkeeper's public shaming will affect his performances when he returns from injury.

Lloris, who guided France to the World Cup crown in Russian Federation this summer, was charged with drink driving following a night out with his France team-mates Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny in central London last month. He said he was guilty and responsible.

"The most important thing is everyone can make a mistake and he is suffering a punishment that society translates to him".

"Of course we had a conversation and he explained all that happened", said Pochettino. We are men and women and we can all mistakes. He said: 'Gaffer, I made a mistake. "Now I need to pay like a man".

He is now out of action with a thigh injury sustained during his side's victory at Manchester United.


"He is a man and he is very conscious about what happened, and of course you can not remove it, but he has the capacity to move on, learn and be focused on playing football", said Pochettino.

"In this situation he has spent a period where he was fighting with this situation, and now I think he's accepting that and he's going to move on and play his best, of course".

He veered his auto "towards parked vehicles" before correcting himself and went through a red light, prosecutor Henry Fitch said.

It means the Frenchman's deputy Michel Vorm is set for an extended spell in the team and is likely to play in the glamour games against Inter Milan and Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League, while Alli is also expected to miss Tuesday's tie with the Serie A side. "I did. Rather than congratulate him, people need to thank me".

The coach added: 'We have confidence and trust in him. Lloris was one of the heroes of France's commanding march to their second football World Cup in 20 years. As he is such a big player and everyone expects something from every action, so his expectations are different'.
