Lloris expects to soon be Tottenham No1

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says he expects to soon be the club's No1.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says he expects to soon be the club's No1.

Lloris says he is "expecting" to play at new club Tottenham - but has vowed to be patient as he bids to displace Brad Friedel as Andre Villas-Boas' number one.

"Things were very clear from the start on Sunday," Lloris told L'Equipe. "I was at Tony Parks (Tottenham's goalkeeping coach) and Brad Friedel's disposal.

"That pitch, that atmosphere, that gives you desire to play. Moreover we got three points that made us start our season.

"For me, it is a period to manage. Obviously I have desire. I came here to play.

"I am at the club, I know where I have to go to. I had a talk with the coach, as he said, and I know everyone at Tottenham wanted me to come.

"So indeed, I am in an adaptation period, I've had very few training sessions, and there are players that I didn't know. But I am expecting time on the pitch."
