On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Maurizio Lloris’s arrival at Tottenham, Tottenham Hotspur has taken stock of the French international goalkeeper’s statistics.

Hugo Lowry first arrived at our old training center, Spurs Lodge, on August 31, 2012, the night we announced the signing of the French international from Lyon,’ the Spurs official wrote. Lowry was 25 years old at the time and faced direct competition from experienced goalkeepers Friedel and Cudicini.

Ten years on, Lowry is now in the top ten in Spurs’ history with 420 appearances in all competitions, has captained the club since 2014, led us to the Champions League final and holds our record for appearances in the Premier League (340 as of today). He is also one of only 13 goalkeepers to have kept more than 100 shutouts in the Premier League (122 as of now).

Lloris, who led the French national team to the 2018 World Cup title, is just three games away from overtaking Thuram (142) for the most appearances in French team history.

Lloris’s productivity and desire to fight is unwavering, and at 35 years old, you could say he’s getting better and better – no wonder some of his teammates call him ‘Benjamin’ after Brad Pitt’s character in the movie ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. ‘.

So now kick off the next 10 years, Hugo!’
