Hugo Lloris has declared that he wants Tottenham to stop talking about their desire for trophies, and start actually winning them instead.
The Spurs captain, who lifted the World Cup as France’s leader last summer, believes no more words are necessary on the subject as everybody at the club knows full well what their ambitions are.

Tottenham last won a trophy over a decade ago when they claimed the League Cup in 2008 and, unsurprisingly, no members of the XI that beat Chelsea that day remain with them today.
Now, they have an entirely new team under Mauricio Pochettino who have come close in recent title races, but are still yet to claim silverware after being beaten in the Champions League final last season.
When asked about the situation Lloris told SunSport: “We have been talking about trophies now for at least two seasons.
“It is one thing to talk about it – it is another thing to show what we can do.
“It is the ambition of the board, the manager, the coaching staff and the players. So we don’t need to add any more words about this.
“The belief is even stronger than before. But it is one thing to say things to the media, it is another thing to tell the truth inside the changing rooms.
“That is the most important thing — to speak the real truths between ourselves.
“Then we need to show what we are saying on the pitch.”
Lloris’ words completely contradict those of his teammate Moussa Sissoko.
Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, the French midfielder said: “I think [for] a few years now the team is doing a great job and we are always close to winning something and it’s always painful to lose near the end.
“I think this club and this team deserves to win something, so hopefully we can do it this year.
“We said it every season now and we’re always missing something, so hopefully this year will be a good one, we’ll have a great season altogether with a lot of success at the end.”
