Tottenham boss AVB defends Lloris after Euro gaffe
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas defended goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after their Europa League victory over Maribor.
Villas-Boas defended Lloris' part in the gaffe, saying: "Sometimes things happen like this.
"It happened to us at Chelsea. It's mistakes that make you evolve as a player and I have no problem with that.
"It could happen to any goalkeeper during any game. It will not affect my decision-making.
"We don't just want to whack it clear, we want to play it from the back. It's more to do with what we want to do with the ball."
Villas-Boas shrugged off Didier Deschamps' claims Lloris is not playing enough games.
When asked what he thought of the France manager's criticism, Villas-Boas pointed to his head and said: "It goes in one ear and comes out the other."
