‘I handed my son the captain’s armband…’ Yoris turns down return to parent team just before deadline for ‘crucial reason’

Tottenham Hotspur’s veteran goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed why he turned down a move to OGC Nice at the end of the transfer window.

“Yoris has revealed why he rejected a move to Nice on the deadline day of the summer transfer window,” the UK’s Evening Standard reported on Thursday.

Yoris opened up in an interview with Nice Martin, a local newspaper in Nice. “I want to remove any ambiguity about what happened in the last few hours: I received a call from my agent about a move to Nice an hour before the transfer window closed,” he said.

However, Yoris remained at Tottenham. He said: “The playing prospects and sporting project were not clearly addressed, which are key factors for a player to make a decision, more so than financial reasons. In my professional career, exchange, sharing, and collective construction drove decisions, and even more so when I returned to the team where I was born and trained. You can’t make a decision on a phone call an hour before the transfer window, without any expectations or a clear project.” 카지노사이트

Yoris added: “To be honest, I couldn’t have made the move without at least a common vision shared with the president and coach of Nice. Nice will always be a special club for me. It’s my city, it’s my club, it’s my blood,” he said, showing his affection for Nice.

Having grown up in the Nice youth team, Yoris left Nice in July 2008 to join Olympique Lyonnais. After four years at Lyon, he joined Tottenham in August 2012. In his 11 seasons with Spurs, Yoris made 447 appearances across all competitions. For 11 years, he was a stalwart in goal for Tottenham.

After 11 seasons as one of the top goalkeepers in the EPL, Yoris was not immune to the passage of time. He began to show signs of decline last season, making more mistakes. After the season, Yoris expressed his desire to leave Tottenham for a new challenge, and Spurs accepted. Besides Nice, he was also linked to Lazio and Newcastle United, but in the end, he didn’t find a new team.
