Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has heaped praise on current manager Mauricio Pochettino, stating that he won't leave the club while the Argentine tactician is in charge.

The 30-year-old shot-stopper has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in recent seasons, but he dispelled exit-talk by recently signing a new deal to keep him at the club until 2022.

Lloris joined the club under the command of Andre  Villas-Boas back in 2012, he was then managed by Tim Sherwood and more recently Mauricio Pochettino, who he is full of praise for.

“He's a man of character, immediately one feels something special at first contact. He has charisma, affection, sometimes a form of hardness as in face to face discussions", he told  ​L'Equipe .

“I've known two coaches (Villas-Boas and Sherwood), but most of all I've known a different club, and I even thought, well, maybe we should move on. But as soon as I met him, a new project started, a relationship of trust was born, that is exactly what he conveyed to his players.”

Lloris has been absolutely key to Tottenham's resurgence in recent seasons, not only does he provide experience for the side's young players, but he also has an unrivalled ability in between the sticks which has seen him become one of the world's most desired goalkeepers.
