Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris says that it is a “privilege” to have the opportunity to work with Jose Mourinho on a daily basis.
The Portuguese, who has coached the likes of Porto, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United in a distinguished career in the dugout, took over from Mauricio Pochettino in the Spurs hotseat in November.
World Cup winner Lloris believes he is lucky to work with someone who is both a great personality and with a wealth of experience.
“He’s great. He’s a character. So of course, through the media, you can have preconceived ideas, but when you get in touch with him on a daily basis, inside a training centre, I think it’s a privilege,” he told Eurosport .
“He’s coached so many great teams, so many great players. He’s got a lot of experience and a lot of trophies in his cupboard. When you’re a player, I think it’s a chance to be at his side because there’s so much to learn.”
The 33-year-old former Nice and Lyon goalkeeper has had a tricky season, which has seen him struggle to maintain his best form while he has also suffered from a serious elbow injury, which prevented him from playing between October and January.
