‘Unreal’: Graham Roberts responds to claims the Tottenham star is making £100,000 a week that he should leave

Graham Roberts has praised Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris despite rumors he could join Lazio this summer.

Added the Tottenham Legend Twitter that Hugo Lloris made for some “unreal memories” during his time as the club’s number one, including helping the team reach the Champions League final under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

Roberts also believes the 36-year-old is the best goalkeeper Tottenham have had since Ray Clemence – but now Lloris is dying to start a new and perhaps final chapter in his career.

On Sunday, Guglielmo Vicario made his Premier League debut for Spurs when he started from between the posts in his side’s 2-2 draw at Brentford.

It has been clear for some time that a new number one is needed, as Lloris had become far too error-prone in recent years.

But Roberts fondly recalled the good times brought by the recently retired France international.

“I wish Hugo all the best if his move to Lazio goes through,” said Roberts.

“For me the best goalkeeper we’ve had since Clem (Ray Clemence) and he gave us some unreal memories. Good luck Hugo. COYS.”

Tottenham’s longest-serving player

The £100,000-a-week (Spotrac) star signed for Spurs in 2012 when Andres-Villas Boas was in charge and underwent a sea change at the club in that time.

With the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino, the London club may not be in Europe but have become a regular in the Champions League and even fought for the Premier League title.

With Ange Postecoglou back in charge, fans are hoping for a return to those days which now seems a long way off.
