Mauricio Pochettino confirms Hugo Lloris is a doubt for Manchester United game

04773478-1024x647Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is a doubt to begin the Premier League season at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Despite travelling to Munich with the Spurs squad, Pochettino remains uncertain over Lloris’ likelihood to play against United on the opening day of the 2015/16 season.

“In terms of Saturday, it is tough,” he told the press.

“It’s not easy because we do a lot of work on physical condition, but maybe this week he will start to catch the ball.

“Maybe it’s early to think he will play on Saturday, but maybe he has a small chance. We don’t decide yet.” 

Lloris has however been seen to conduct training as normal, as the club’s official Snapchat account showed the ‘keeper diving and catching the ball during Tuesday’s session.

Pochettino and Lloris face Rafa Benitez’s Real Madrid in the 2015 Audi Cup later this evening.
