Lloris ready for France qualifiers

6 September 2012 21:44

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris insists he is focused on his duties with France ahead of their opening World Cup qualifiers.

France face Finland and Belarus during the international break, and the national side's captain has dismissed claims his deadline-day move to White Hart Lane has hampered his preparation after an off-season of uncertainly over his future.

Lloris told France Football: "About my personal situation, it is neither the place nor the time to discuss this.

"I think I'm professional enough to make sense of things.

"Throughout the preparation (with Lyon), there was a lot of noise and a choice has been made (to sell), but I prepared myself the best ways with OL to deal with this qualifying phase.

"I have much desire to start this phase and I've lived a few games that can help me."

Lloris, who has made 38 appearances for France since making his debut in 2008 against Uruguay, moved to Spurs for a fee rising to 12.3 million pounds.

It came after a drawn-out transfer saga which prompted Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas to hit out at the north London outfit's chairman Daniel Levy and his handling of the negotiations.
