Speaking to the press after Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-0 Champions League win over Marseille last night, France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris notably discussed the recent injury issues hitting Les Bleus, with Karim Benzema and Paul Pogba notably sidelined of late.
The Real Madrid forward is set to miss the next international break with a thigh issue, while Pogba underwent a knee operation. Lloris also declined to make a comment regarding what the Juventus man claims to be attempted extortion from a group including his brother, who has claimed he resorted to witchcraft.
“I don’t know anything about that [Pogba scandal]. What I’m most worried about are the small physical issues that they are having, We’ll need our best players in November and I hope that they’ll have all recovered. I hope it’s not too serious for Karim Benzema. For Paul Pogba, we know that his chances [of making the World Cup] are compromised.”
