OVERVIEW

After joining us on the final day of the summer transfer window, Hugo soon became a fan favourite with commanding displays throughout his debut Premier League season.

The French captain impressed with lightning reflexes off his line and excellent decision-making, also proving to be a difficult opponent for to beat in one-on-one situations.

The 26-year-old became an essential part of our pressing game, almost operating as a sweeper behind the two central defenders and allowing us to play an advanced line.

IN HIS WORDS

"This season was important for me. It was a new step in my career. I’ve discovered a lot of new things and really enjoyed my first season.

"I really appreciate playing for Tottenham, playing at White Hart Lane with great fans. The fans travel with us everywhere. I think there is a big community in White Hart Lane between players and fans.

"We won a lot of important games this season against teams like Arsenal and Manchester City; that was when we really felt the power of our fans. It was a great feeling. I had a lot of great moments this season and I hope to have a lot of great moments in the future and I hope to win trophies with Tottenham Hotspur. That’s important for the club, the players and for the supporters."

KEY MOMENT

Lloris kept us in the match with a string of superb saves during his debut against Lazio, the 1-0 victory at home to Southampton and thwarted Carloz Tevez and co. time and time again in the 3-1 win against Manchester City.

But Hugo's save against West Ham at Upton Park stands out. With the Hammers leading 2-1, the Frenchman raced off his line to make a brilliant stop against Matt Taylor which kept us in the match.
