Lyon manager Remi Garde is excited about the opportunity to meet Tottenham in the Europa League Round of 32.

The French outfit have been drawn with Spurs in the initial knockout phase and Garde can’t wait to go up against former star goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who has edged his way into the number one shirt at White Hart Lane following his summer move to North London.

"Drawing Tottenham, it made us all think about Hugo," said the former Arsenal defender.

"That is fate. It will probably be quite moving for him here. I hope he will not want to shine against us, but I fear he will."

He added: "White Hart Lane? It won't be too difficult to remember. Of course there are memories that come back.

"I am not sure if the Spurs' fans will remember my period with Gunners, but maybe that night they will make an effort."
