Tottenham boss Mourinho: Lloris a great leader

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is delighted working with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

The France captain made his 250th appearance for Spurs last week.

Mourinho said, "The first thing is that he's a fantastic goalkeeper. Everyone can see that, and we don't need to say it. I remember when I was working for a TV channel, BeIn, on a Champions League night when he saved the penalty against City, I said that it wasn't just Tottenham going into the next round, it was also Hugo making history by being the first goalkeeper to save a penalty in the new stadium.

"Detail after detail, he's making fantastic history at the Club and as a person, he's a guy with great experience, great stability, a positive influence on everyone around him. We have a young squad and we need people like Hugo, captain of France, Harry, captain of England, Moussa Sissoko, we need these players."
