Chelsea coach Lollichon enjoys dig at Spurs captain Lloris

Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon has enjoyed a dig at Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris.

Lollichon insists PSG's Alphonse Areola is the better keeper after he made his France debut for the 0-0 draw with Germany.

"For me, he is already the best French goalkeeper today," Lollichon told Le Figaro.

"His size, his ball-playing qualities, his calmness, he is the goalkeeper most adapted to playing in the way of the team. We eulogise about Lloris too much, but Areola is above him.

"Against Germany, he was very good in his position and his ability to cut out balls behind his defence. It is the base of any goalkeeper, but not everyone can do it as well."
