Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has urged his team to win trophies and not just talk about them.
Spurs’ trophy cabinet has not seen a new additional for a few years and Lloris believes it’s time that changes. The North London club finished runners-up in the Champions League last season and will be motivated to better their result this season.
“We have been talking about trophies now for at least two seasons,” Lloris told The Sun. “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,” Lloris added. “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.”
Spurs’ first major challenge in the new season arrives on Saturday as they take on Manchester City in what promises to be an intense clash in the Premier League.
Lloris added: “It is a big, big game. Every big game can be decisive, so it is important to be ready. The focus has to be very strong from the start.
“The only thing Saturday’s result will tell us is the truth of that one game.”
