There was so much transfer speculation over the summer with new arrivals going into the Tottenham Hotspur side, but probably the most surprising one was French international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris showing up at White Hart Lane on the final day of transfers and signing a contract.
At the time it was assumed that Spurs did not need a new stopper with Brad Friedel, Carlo Cudicini and Heurelho Gomes their three options.
But Lloris was coming in with a big reputation as one of the world’s best and a big future ahead of him in the game. However, he has failed to make that number one spot his own and it is clear that he is not happy with the situation.
Friedel is the man keeping him out of the starting line-up because the veteran keeper is still one of the best in the League and has put in some star performances over the course of the last campaign and the start of this one.
But there has been a lot of debate on why one of the best keepers in the world is being kept out by somebody whose career is almost over.
The answer is simple, Friedel is an outstanding keeper who has been around the game along time and has still got what it takes to cut it at the very top.
And Lloris was brought in to eventually replace the aging star, but the Frenchman thought it would be this season rather than next years.
Both keepers are top-quality, but who would you have between the sticks for Spurs?
