Hugo Lloris will not feature for Tottenham Hotspur again in 2019, after dislocating his elbow against Brighton & Hove Albion, as has been reported by talkSPORT.
However, the Spurs captain seems to have remained in high spirits, with the club posting a video of the Frenchman greeting his teammates while he continues his rehabilitation:
Hugo still in high spirits as he continues his rehab at Hotspur Way.

The spirits of some Spurs fans are not as high as those of the 32-year-old though, with concerns around the team’s performances and the goalkeeper himself being aired in the replies.
Lloris has played 9 games across the Champions League and Premier League this campaign, conceding 17 goals and keeping just 1 clean sheet, as per Transfermarkt.
To make things worse, this comes in a season where Spurs have only won 3 games from 11 in all competitions so far.
Some fans are suggesting the club needs to buy a new goalkeeper to fix their problems, while there have been other suggestions that the Frenchman should be stripped of his captaincy.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the video, including posts from downhearted Spurs fans, can be seen below:
Irony is he injured himself with one of the most ridiculous mistakes you will ever see

I’m pleased he’s ok but I still want another goalie

Couple handshakes don’t make him worthy of the armband.
Not my captain.

No wonder he’s in high spirits doesn’t have to play behind that dodgy defence for a couple of months
