Lloris suffers fractured wrist, questionable for Spurs opener vs. Manchester United

0 Comments

The good news for Tottenham Hotspur is that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris remains at White Hart Lane with his five-year contract despite this busy transfer window.

The bad news is that Spurs’ No. 1 keeper has broken his wrist and could meet the start of the season, because wrists are quite important in catching and parrying shots.

Spurs didn’t specify when the injury occurred, besides “during the closed season”.

From Tottenhamhotspur.com:

The France goalkeeper will continue to work alongside the First Team squad to build up his fitness in a bid to be ready for the start of the season.

Our medical team will continue to monitor his rehabilitation and progress during pre-season.

Tottenham opens the 2015-16 season with Manchester United on Aug. 8, followed by Stoke City, Leicester City and Everton.

Fortunately, Spurs do have very good insurance in ex-Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm, but he’s their only other senior goalkeeper under contract.
