Tony Cascarino claimed that Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris never excelled with his feet and Pochettino should stop requiring things he can’t do.
On Saturday’s game against Southampton, Spurs managed to get all three points with winning 2-1, but due to Lloris’ assist Southampton equalized the score.
Spurs’ boss took the blame for Lloris saying: “Don’t blame Hugo, blame me, I demand him to play in this way. He showed great mentality (in the second half) and that is why he is one of the best in the world.”
Writing in his column in the Times, Cascarino said, “Lloris is a great shot-stopper, capable of pulling off world-class saves, but has never excelled with his feet. Pochettino should stop asking him to do something he finds so difficult.”
