Lloris says Spurs “gave up too easily”

Hugo Lloris says Tottenham “gave up too easily” during the 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich and insists they have no more room for manoeuvre in the Champions League.

“I feel really bad for the fans mainly because we gave up too easily and the score was even worse,” he said.

“It is a night that affects a lot. Now it’s about character, clearing the mind. The next two games against Red Star will become even more important – we cannot lose any more points.”

Tottenham have had an inconsistent start to the season and are yet to post back-to-back wins, something Lloris insists needs to change – starting against Brighton on Saturday.

“We need to find a solution to find the consistency that was our strength in the last few years,” the France international added.

“Since the start of the season we have never played at the same intensity for 90 minutes.

“As you see we’re used to playing in a way that demands a lot of energy and focus, and at this level the opponent punishes you when you start to lose easy balls close to the box.

“Today we feel bad for the badge, we feel bad for the fans and now it is to show a reaction on Saturday. This game has become even more important for us.”
