Pochettino said Lloris would remain captain despite his drink-driving case, replying "of course" when asked whether that would be the case.

Lloris was convicted for drink-driving after being pulled over in his auto and breathalysed - which revealed he had over double the legal alcohol limit in his system while at the wheel.

"I think of course that he regrets about everything and all that happened yesterday is not good and of course he does not feel great", Poch said. He said he is guilty of this situation and is responsible. "The staff, the club, the fans, us, and he said that any decision that you take gaffer or the club I think is fair". We need to try (to see) he understands he made a mistake. But of course we're not God, that we can judge people. Then we're all men and women and we can all make mistakes.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris hasn't ruled out a return to action against Liverpool FC in the Premier League on Saturday. Because he is a clever, he learns and now he is going to move on'.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week.

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino spoke at a press conference and with Sky Sports specifically about the upcoming matches against Liverpool and the Champions League fixture against Inter.

"I told him today: 'Where is my present, Sonny?"

"Disappointed, because we're going to miss him for this game, and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League, but it is not a big issue".

Son gives Spurs another option in attack, while Pochettino defended Harry Kane, whose form has been criticised in a start to the season when the World Cup Golden Boot victor has seemed to lack sharpness. There's no doubt that he's one of the best strikers or players in England and in Europe.
