​Lloris says Tottenham future dependent on boss Pochettino

Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris says his future will be linked with that of boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Asked about his future by Le Figaro, Lloris said: "My destiny is linked to Mauricio, it's a certainty.

"He matters a lot to me. Our relationship goes beyond football, it's a match, and one day he will be the best manager in the world. For me he is already. His presence and our relationship are the most important elements for me."

Lloris has made over 200 appearances for Spurs after joining from Lyon in 2012.

Discussing his ambitions, he said: "There are things you cannot refuse, but that does not mean I am desperate. There are some teams that demand admiration, they are monsters for what they have done in their past, and in 10 or 15 years they will win again.

"Tottenham is not a club that always wins, but we are trying to create something. It's not easy to fight against European monsters but it is a motivation."
