Lloris Decision Slammed

November 4, 2013 by  

Lloris Decision Slammed, Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas decision to keep goalkeeper Hugo Lloris on the pitch after taking a heavy blow to his head was both “dangerous and irresponsible” which also put his long-term health at risk.

That is the view of Headway, a brain injury charity that has slammed the Spurs’ boss for choosing not to bring off the French shot-stopper after he collided with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in the 78th minute of their 0-0 Premier League encounter on Sunday.

With replacement goalkeeper Brad Friedel ready to come on, and a visibly hurt Lloris taken towards the sidelines, Villas-Boas quickly sent the American back to the bench once it seemed Lloris could continue, despite remaining wobbly on his feet having spent a lengthy period receiving treatment from the Spurs medical staff.

“We are hugely concerned that a professional football club should take such an irresponsible and cavalier attitude to a player’s health,” said Luke Griggs, spokesperson for Headway.
