Hugo Lloris could lose Tottenham captaincy after drink-driving charge

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for British road safety charity Brake, said it was disappointing to see a role model such as Lloris admitting to breaking the law by drink driving.

On August 24, Lloris was stopped by police and found guilty.

World Cup-winning France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds (US$65,000) and banned from driving for 20 months for drunk driving.

Asked whether Lloris, who was found to be twice the legal limit and had a passenger in the auto, would remain captain, Pochettino said: "Of course". "I think he's fit, I have not read or heard what's going on around him, the most important thing for me is that we trust him".

"Of course he doesn't feel great".

Shortly after his arrest last month, Pochettino kept faith with Lloris as retained the captaincy in the 3-0 win at Manchester United. He made a mistake and he's suffered the punishment of society.

He said a taxi which had booked cancelled so Lloris made "the first of a number of unwise decisions" and chose to drive home. He said "Gaffer, I made a mistake".

'He already knew in the moment that it was a big mistake. "Now, because he is clever, he learns and he is going to move on".

"I am learning a lot!"
