Tottenham captain Lloris won't criticise ref for Sissoko hand-ball

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris refused to criticise the match officials after their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool.

Spurs were behind inside the first minute after a controversial hand-ball awarded against Moussa Sissoko.

Lloris said at the final whistle: "The penalty? The referee makes his decision very quickly. I do not know, you have to see the pictures. If the referee made that decision, it was the right one.

"We missed the start of the match and we had to manage this conceded goal. Despite that, we tried to produce our game but we were too shy in the last 30 metres. We were not very dangerous, it was rather easy to defend for Liverpool."
