We are delighted to announce that Hugo Lloris has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Club, which will run until 2024.
Captain of Club and country, World Cup and UEFA Nations League winner with France, Hugo, 35, has racked up 395 appearances since his arrival from Lyon in August, 2012. Already 14th in our all-time appearance list, he will soon become only the 12th player to make 400-plus appearances for us in all competitions. Only two goalkeepers – all-time greats Pat Jennings (590) and Ted Ditchburn (452) – have played more for us.
Outstanding since returning from a dislocated elbow suffered in October, 2019, Hugo is ever-present in the Premier League this season, and on a run of 67 successive starts in the league going back to the 1-1 draw at Burnley in March, 2020. During that time, he’s written his name in Club record books by becoming the first player to make 300 appearances for us in the Premier League, surpassing Darren Anderton’s long-standing record mark of 299 when he led the team out at Wolves on 22 August. He’s now up to 317. Meanwhile, Hugo is also level with legendary former captain Steve Perryman on 64 appearances for us in European competition, second only behind team-mate Harry Kane (68).
Hugo is also the first goalkeeper to keep 100 clean sheets for us in the Premier League, now up to 112, one of only 16 goalkeepers to reach a century in the history of the competition.
Captain since 2014, Hugo has led the team out in three cup finals, including the Champions League Final in 2019. He played a huge role in our qualification for the Champions League in 2015/16 and a record 2016/17 campaign, where we finished second in the Premier League with a Club high 86 points and conceded a Club record low of 26 goals in a league season.
First capped by France in 2008, Hugo is now up to 136 appearances for his country, second only behind Lilian Thuram (142). He captained Les Bleus for the first time in 2010 and has now worn the armband on a record 108 occasions, leading France in five major tournaments – Euro 2012, the 2014 World Cup, Euro 2016, the 2018 World Cup and Euro 2020.
In Russia in 2018, Hugo became the first Spurs player to win the World Cup and, indeed, lift the trophy as captain.
