France coach Didier Deschamps has indicated that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is unhappy with comments made by Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas, just four days after his move to White Hart Lane.

Lloris left Lyon for Spurs in an £8m move on Friday, with the clear intention of becoming his new club’s first choice between the sticks.
With Friedel now 41, it appeared Lloris, 16 years his junior, had been brought in with the idea of replacing the veteran American.

But Friedel responded to his arrival by producing one of the performances of his career against Norwich City on Saturday, prompting Villas-Boas to say that Lloris would have a fight on his hands to win a starting spot. That does not appear to have gone down too well with the Frenchman, who linked up with the national team on Monday.

Speaking at their base in Clairefontaine, Deschamps told L`Equipe: “Hugo has not appreciated the statements of his coach.

“I am not going to create a problem that I do not need today. But if it were to happen then it would need some consideration. I do not want Hugo to find himself in this situation.”
