Tottenham captain Lloris: The players want to play in front of fans

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris says the players' ideal scenario would be to complete the season in front of full stadiums.

However, he accepts the campaign is likely to end behind closed doors.

Lloris told Le Parisian: "There is a reflection to have. The economic aspect sometimes tends to take precedence over the sporting aspect. There are such financial issues for clubs.

"It can be understood. But above all, there is health. The different authorities, in each country, or on a European scale, are working to find appropriate solutions.

"If we ask a soccer player for his opinion, he will tell you that he wants to play, once or twice a week, in front of spectators, because that is the essence of our discipline.

"This is where we get to go beyond ourselves. But if we have to finish the championship behind closed doors, we will do it. Even if it's not the same sport."
