Hugo Lloris believes Tottenham Hotspur need to win a trophy to start a winning tradition at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men geared up for Saturday’s north London derby with a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

There are five, six, seven top clubs which are able to win, or are at the same level as the champions in France, Italy, Germany

And Lloris, who moved to Spurs from Lyon in a £10m deal in 2012, believes there is a difference in attitude between Tottenham and other top European clubs.

“When you go into a club, the first thing is tradition,” Lloris is quoted as saying.

“This is the difference between the top clubs in Europe and Tottenham.

“They are used to winning so when you are a new player in that club, in the changing room there are a lot of players who won a lot of titles.

“For that, we need to start with one trophy.”

Lloris added that Tottenham would be rivalling any of the champions in Europe’s other main leagues.

“Yes. But we are in the Premier League and it is the most difficult league to win in the world,” Lloris added.

“There are five, six, seven top clubs which are able to win, or are at the same level as the champions in France, Italy, Germany.”
