France's World Cup-winning captain Hugo Lloris has been banned from driving for 20 months and fined after pleading guilty to a charge of drink driving, British media reported yesterday.

Lloris was convicted for drink-driving after being pulled over in his auto and breathalysed - which revealed he had over double the legal alcohol limit in his system while at the wheel. All that happened (in court) is not good and he does not feel great.

"Of course he was lucky there was no outcome", Pochettino said. He is punishing himself.

"In this situation he has spent a period where he was fighting with this situation, and now I think he's accepting that and he's going to move on and play his best, of course".

'It was a mistake & then we are men & women - we can all make mistakes. He's the first, he told me, "Gaffer it's a massive lesson for me". It's a massive lesson to everyone'.

'He already knew in the moment that it was a big mistake.

The Spurs captain has been with the club since 2012.

Alli completed the full ninety minutes during England's opening defeat to Spain in the Nations League last weekend but it soon emerged that the midfielder had sustained a muscle problem during the game.

In other team news for Tottenham, Juan Foyth returned to training last week after injuring his thigh, while Moussa Sissoko, out with a hamstring injury, is expected to get back to training next week.

"I told him today: 'Where is my present, Sonny?" "I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

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.
