France boss Deschamps again wades into Lloris' Tottenham situation

France manager Didier Deschamps has again spoken out about goalkeeper Hugo Lloris' situation at Tottenham.

The Les Bleus captain has made just one Premier League appearance for Spurs since joining from Lyon for £8million in the summer but has also been used in the Europa League when Andre Villas-Boas rests Brad Friedel.

Deschamps has previously criticised Villas-Boas for the way he has treated Lloris but was slightly more positive in his words this time around.

"We are not talking of a player who does not play," Deschamps told Eurosport.

"Since he played his excellent match against Spain (France's 1-1 draw last month), he has kept goal three times.

"Hugo is playing one match per week. Of course, he would like to play more, and it is not the case for the moment.

"He is getting on with it as best he possibly can (but) obviously he would like to play more."
