The Spurs boss said yesterday the France World Cup victor will remain as club captain despite his conviction this week and even though Lloris admitted he would understand if it was taken from him.

Lloris was convicted for drink-driving after being pulled over in his vehicle and breathalysed - which revealed he had over double the legal alcohol limit in his system while at the wheel.

"He's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good", he said. He said he was guilty of this situation and it's irresponsible. He made a mistake and he's suffered the punishment.

"He is punishing himself but we are not God that we can judge people only".

"He said "Gaffer it's a massive lesson for me. Now I need to pay like a man".

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of his sides Premier League fixture against Liverpool on Saturday, Pochettino was asked if Lloris would remain his skipper, to which he replied: "Of course".

"First of all I want to congratulate him, because it's such an important victory to avoid the military service", Pochettino said. Because he is a clever, he learns and now he is going to move on'.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be missing for several weeks with a thigh injury.

"I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my teammates, the manager and all of the supporters", Lloris had earlier said.

"Only we need to try, that he understands, and how he understands that it was a mistake".

'And of course it's more complicated today to be a manager than 20 or 30 years ago'.

Pochettino also insists he has no concerns about the form of Harry Kane, who has made a sluggish start to the season after his World Cup exertions. I am not disappointed with him.

"The most thing here is the confidence and trust we have in him". As he is such a big player and everyone expects something from every action, so his expectations are different'.
