Regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, French international captain Hugo joined Spurs on transfer deadline day, August 31, 2012.
Named vice-captain at the start of the 2014-15 season, Hugo went on to skipper the team for most of the Premier League campaign and proudly led the team out for the Capital One Cup Final at Wembley.
Hugo played in 44 of our 57 matches in all competitions and a knee injury suffered early against Leicester on March 21 ended a sequence of 57 consecutive starts in the Premier League. Indeed, Hugo started 93 of 95 Premier League matches for us between November, 2013 and March, 2015.
Captain of France, Hugo took his senior cap count to 67 after summer friendlies against Belgium and Albania.
Hugo began his senior playing career with Nice in 2005, where he made 72 appearances before departing for French champions Olympique Lyonnais, where he clocked up 146 league appearances, twice winning the Ligue 1 Goalkeeper of the Year award.
The 25-year-old captained his country for the first time in November, 2010, against England at Wembley.
After joining us in August, 2012, he made his Spurs debut and kept a clean sheet in the goalless draw against Lazio in the Europa League in September, 2012, before his Premier League bow against Villa in October.
He went on to establish himself as 'number one' in a fine first season at the Lane in 2012-13, eventually starting 27 times in the Premier League in a total of 33 appearances.
Hugo enjoyed an outstanding 2013-14 campaign, where he featured 45 times for us in all competitions including 37 of our 38 matches in the Premier League. He followed that by proudly captaining the French national team to the World Cup quarter-finals in Brazil, where they lost 1-0 against eventual winners Germany.
