Hugo Lloris is an excellent goalkeeper, but it would be fair to say that the Tottenham Hotspur man has had some poor games for his club this season.
The Spurs supporters have not exactly been shy in letting him know when that has been the case, but Lloris has been widely praised by the fans following Wednesday’s incredible Champions League clash with Manchester City.
The 6 foot 2 shot-stopper conceded four times at the Etihad Stadium, but came up with a couple of crucial saves which proved vital as Tottenham booked their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League on the away-goals rule.
Defensively, Tottenham had a lot of problems in Manchester, but they were on the right end of what was a crazy game of football.
Lloris spoke to Spurs TV after the match and that led to a number of the London club’s supporters taking to social media to hail the France international.

What a guy. I know Sonny gets most of the plaudits but Hugo’s penalty save and the KDB save last night were both as valuable as a goal. Well played big man. Wanna see you lifting that CL trophy ? #COYS

Had lost faith with this man after Liverpool but has bounced back superbly, immense in both legs, save from KDB last night is as good as you’ll see, penalty save was vital in first leg too ?
