Lloris believes Pogba’s absence will be ‘a big miss’

The prospect of not playing in Qatar with Paul Pogba does not delight Hugo Lloris. His absence from the World Cup will create “a big lack” within the France team, the captain of the Blues said on Tuesday, a few days after the announcement of the Juventus midfielder’s package.

“There was always hope of seeing him again. He is a very important player, more than important for the team. He’s been struggling with injuries for a few months, he didn’t play much last season. Of course, it will be a big miss, ”said Hugo Lloris in the mixed zone, after Tottenham’s victory in Marseille in the Champions League.

Waiting for Deschamps’ choices

“Now the coach will make his choices. When you start a competition, you have to have great confidence in all the players selected. Then it will be up to all those selected to create this synergy and make us strong together, ”added Lloris.

Operated on his right knee in early September, Pogba was hit in the thigh in recent days and said he could not be recovered in time for the World Cup in Qatar, from November 20.
