​Tottenham manager Lloris: Credit goes to Conte and his staff

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris believes Antonio Conte deserves a lot of credit for their successful season.

Spurs were struggling in the early part of the campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo.

A 3-0 loss to Manchester United prompted his firing and the arrival of Conte and his staff.

Spurs finished the season in fourth spot, pipping rivals Arsenal to Champions League football.

"I think it's a big achievement. When you look at the season, there's so many up and downs. The credit belongs to the players for never giving up but also to Antonio Conte and his coaching staff," admitted Lloris.

"It's a team win and I think it's going to give the club the positiveness to prepare for next season with the guidance of Antonio Conte.

He added: "I believe he knows exactly what he wants and needs. I believe there is huge confidence. It's just about making decisions together now.

"I'm a player, we're going to switch off from the club. We still have international duties but now it belongs to the main protagonists to make the right decisions, to prepare for next season as well as we can. Then we'll come back with desire and ambition."
