France players hit out at Tottenham treatment of Lloris

France players have jumped to support Hugo Lloris over his struggles at Tottenham.

French football is angered by Lloris' failure to dislodge Brad Friedel as Spurs' first-choice goalkeeper this season.

Lloris' former Lyon teammate Bafetimbi Gomis admitted that "his situation saddens me and surprises me", while Lille's France forward Dimitri Payet said: "It is a difficult situation.

"It's not easy for him to deal with that. But we are all aware of his talent and I hope he can quickly regain his place on the pitch."
