Hugo Lloris has issued a rallying call to his Tottenham teammates in order to win trophies.

In an interview from the Evening Standard, following the recent draw with Manchester City.

Team captain, Lloris is adamant that his side must be more resilient in games if they are to take a trophy back to the Tottenham Hotprurs stadium.

Although it was an impressive season for Spurs, they ended up barely scraping into the top 4 after ending the season with 13 defeats.

But success in football is simply measured by the number of trophies won. Spurs have been in a trophy drought for over ten years now.

the last time they won a trophy was back in 2008, and that was the League Cup.

Hugo Lloris feels a more resilient team, can turn defeats and draws into victories.

He said:

“One thing that we try to improve this season: if you cannot win, it’s important to not lose the game, especially against an opponent like Manchester City.”

“If you want to stay in contact with the best team in the Premier League, it’s important to get this feeling.”

“There were some games that we lost [last term] that we should have drawn. We all know the difficulty of playing at City, so it’s a good feeling to build confidence.”

He continued:

“With humility, Liverpool and City are the real contenders.”

“We’re going to try our best to challenge for top spot, but it’s difficult to find the consistency.

“We just need to try to use the experience of the last few years in the best way and it’s about details.”

“To not lose a game, especially a game you do not deserve to win. You draw, you take a point and it’s very good because your rivals share the point with you.”

“Now it’s just to keep the consistency. Consistency is the key.”
