The boyhood Spurs fan even had some words of advice for Andre Villas-Boas on the goalkeeping situation at White Hart Lane with the Portuguese manager forced to choose between veteran Brad Friedel and £12m deadline day recruit Lloris.
He said: "Friedel has been fantastic this season so it is hard to drop him. But you can see against us what a good keeper Hugo is. I am sure he will probably get in the team in the end. I thought he had a good game. He is obviously a fantastic keeper.
"To pay £12million for a keeper he has to be good."
