Hugo Lloris is delighted with his new Tottenham contract.
Approaching his 10-year anniversary at Spurs – arriving from Lyon in August, 2012 – the goalkeeper has signed a new deal that will take him to the summer of 2024.
“I feel really happy, obviously for me, but also for my family, to extend my stay in London and at Spurs for the next two years,” he told the club’s website.
“I feel it’s a privilege to play football and to play for such a big club like Spurs. Also, the relationship with the fans is important for me. In the last few months, I’ve felt their support even more than before. So, the decision was really easy to take for me.
“I’m really happy to be in this situation and to be focused now on the next months and years, to continue our work and to continue the development of our team. I believe we are in a new process under Antonio Conte, with strong team basics to give us a foundation and a structure. Then, it’s up to the players to show their quality. Step by step, we’ll then see improvement.
“My wish is to become even more competitive and to close the gap with the best teams in England, and why not get back into the Champions League? This season, this is my personal target, to help the team and the Club to continue in that way, and to enjoy football.
“Now, it’s the beginning of a new process and hopefully, with the help of Antonio and his staff, with his experience, with his energy, with his discipline, we’re going to make something important for the Club.”
The 35 year-old also said: “I feel good in my mind and I feel good in my body, and I feel ready for the challenge for the next two years – ready to fight, ready to work. This is something that is in my mind every day. When I wake up in the morning, I go to the training ground with happiness, with the desire to work, with the desire to improve.
“I believe that there is no age to improvement. It doesn’t matter what age you are, the most important thing is that willingness. I used to be very demanding of myself, and I will continue in that way, and probably even more to the players around me, because that’s the only way to improve together as a team and to reach a high level together as a team.”
