Hugo Lloris’ ‘premeditated’ attack on Tottenham team-mate Son Heung-min was a ‘big act’

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been accused of a “premeditated” attack on team-mate Son Heung-min.

Lloris had to be held back from the South Korean attacker as Spurs heading off the pitch for half-time against Leicester.

The French stopper was left angered by Son losing the ball in the build-up to Richarlison’s first goal and made his feelings known.

Manager Jose Mourinho later referred to their confrontation as “beautiful” after the game – but former boss Tim Sherwood did not agree.

And he slammed Lloris for his “out of character” behaviour, which he feels was a “big act” designed to send a message to Mourinho.

Sherwood said: “Do it in the dressing room. I wouldn’t do it for the show.

“I think he’s done it for the show there. It’s very out of character for Hugo, he hardly says a word!

“He’s wearing the armband for his performances and he’s captain for France too, where he won the World Cup. He’s a very good goalkeeper but very level-headed [normally]. This is totally out of character.

The pair soon made up and Tim Sherwood says it was a “big act”

“They do care [ Tottenham ’s squad], I’m sure they care – there’s not a player there that doesn’t care. But a premeditated little scuffle on the pitch? It’s not my cup of tea. It should be left for the dressing room.

“If they’re going to have a fight then have a fight. Not putting someone in between them. It was like a big act.

“I’ve been in games where there has been fights but the red mist comes over and there’s no stopping them.

“But nobody wanted to fight there. It was premeditated in my opinion. It’s something that should be left to the dressing room.”
