Goalkeeper, restaurant owner…can I be happy in my hometown in my later years?

“It’s a big moment for the club and for me.”

Tottenham captain and Son Heung-min’s fellow goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, appears to have made up his mind to hang up his boots after 11 years with the club.

The veteran goalkeeper, who turns 37 in December, has been Tottenham’s first-choice goalkeeper for the past 11 years. In 447 appearances, he has kept 151 clean sheets. He was also a perennial number one for the French national team. He played in four World Cups.

But last season was a shock for Yoris. From the start, he was criticized for costly mistakes that led to defeats. On top of that, he was plagued by back injuries that seemed to defy the passage of time. Even at the end of the season, he was unable to play due to a hip injury. In the meantime, Spurs finished the season in eighth place, accepting their worst result in 13 years, failing to qualify for a European tournament.

Yoris still has one year left on his contract with Spurs. However, a parting of the ways is highly likely. Spurs are already scrambling to find a new first-choice goalkeeper. The fans have also turned their backs on Yoris. No matter how old he is, it would be a blow to his pride to be benched as a backup.

In an interview with Nice local publication Nice Martin, Yoris said: “I’m at an important moment, for the club and for me. It’s the end of an era. I feel a desire for something else,” admitting that he had effectively decided to leave Tottenham.

“I will quietly study what I can do,” Yi said. Of course, I’m not forgetting that I have one year left on my contract at Tottenham, and in football you never know what’s going to happen,” he said cautiously.

“The main thing now is to recover well from the injury. I’m on vacation, but I’m still training. My goal is to be back to full fitness in July. Then we will see what my future holds,” he explained.

Yoris reportedly received a £300,000-a-week offer from an ‘oil money’ Saudi Arabian club. However, Yoris is more interested in returning to his hometown club Nice than money. Yoris was born in Nice and played for the club for 11 years between 1997 and 2008, where he developed into a top-level player. He played for Nice’s youth team from 1997 to 2005 and made his senior debut in 2005. He played 78 games for Nice before moving to Olympique Lyonnais.먹튀검증

It is unclear whether Nice will be able to retain their starting goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. If Schmeichel leaves, Yoris’ chances of returning to the team could increase. Yoris recently opened a high-end restaurant in Nice. If you go to Nice, you can “double up” as a restaurant owner and goalkeeper.
