Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris: Retirement? There's so much more to achieve!

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says retirement isn't preying on his mind.

However, he does admit his career is now in it's final stretch.

The 33 year-old told L'Equipe: "The only thing I'm sure of is that I'm closer to the end than the beginning!

"But I don't ask myself questions. I want to profit even more. I take pleasure in work, in effort. I want to be happy everyday. I need this permanent questioning. It's my balance as a top athlete.

"I need this strength and this ambition. I am always driven by the desire to win. Today is difficult to predict. We will take things in order. My priority remains Tottenham and that the club continues to raise its level.

"We are in a complicated and jagged season. That's why I want it to end even more. I'm still hopeful that we will qualify for the Champions League. In fifteen years of professional career, I had never known such a big break. We have to start as best as possible and be ready to take on this challenge of the final sprint."
