Lloris: Poch made me stay
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted he was contemplating his future at the club until Mauricio Pochettino arrived at White Hart Lane.

The France captain signed a new five-year deal shortly after Pochettino's appointment in the summer of 2014, crediting the Argentine at the time and believing that Spurs would progress under his stewardship.

"I've flourished completely here,"he told L'Equipe."I can even say that since the arrival of Pochettino I found new benchmarks.

"I had not felt a strong club, but rather an unstable one, with a coaching change in the middle of the season, just the opposite of what I like to see in football. I was actually asking myself questions until Pochettino arrived."
