Spurs coach Parks: Lloris best keeper in Premier League

Tottenham goalkeeper coach Tony Parks is full of praise for their No1 Hugo Lloris.

Parks rates the Frenchman the best keeper in the Premier League.

He told the Spurs website: "Obviously, he has all the attributes that all top goalkeepers have - agility, speed, power - he doesn't look particularly strong in terms of his frame, but he's a physically strong individual. I don't think there is a lot to choose between the top goalkeepers these days, just their mental strength and that's the area that really impresses me with Hugo. He's mentally very tough. He's been playing for a long time already, from a young age, when he was given the opportunity to perform in matches rather than on training pitches. That is now our gain.

"I believe, absolutely, that he is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and I won't change my opinion on that. The Club made a fantastic signing when we brought him in and I think he's repaid that faith with a high level of performance over his 50 Premier League games for us so far."
