Lyon coach Garde sorry Tottenham keeper Lloris won't start

Lyon coach Remi Garde is disappointed Hugo Lloris won't be in goal for Europa League opponents Tottenham.

Lloris has been in superb form of late, but Andre Villas-Boas revealed today that Brad Friedel will start in goal ahead of the France captain, much to Garde's disappointment.

"I suppose it's kind of a regret (that Lloris is not playing). It is for all of us," Garde said.

"He was very much loved at Lyon. He made a big impression.

"He was a great guy so it would have been nice to have the experience of coming up against him, rather than just seeing him in the corridor."
