Hugo Lloris insists he's not frightened of hard work at Tottenham.

The France goalkeeper's attitude has been questioned after Les Bleus coach Didier Deschamps criticised Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas for preferring in-form veteran Brad Friedel in goal.

"I will join Tottenham with tranquility, discover a new world, a different league. I have a lot of things to prove there. I have to work hard," assured Lloris.
