Hugo Lloris explains his bust-up with Son Heung-min

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has explained his burst up with teammate Son Heung-min during their Monday night win over Everton.

The French goalkeeper and Son were to be separated at half time after they got engaged in a shouting match as they headed to the dressing rooms.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Lloris said whatever happened between the pair is part of football sometimes.

“It just belongs to the changing room – outside you can say whatever you want. What happened between me and Sonny is part of football sometimes. There’s no problem. At the end of the game, you could see we were more than happy.

“(It was related to) a chance (for Richarlison) a few seconds before half-time. But it’s part of football – we move on,” Lloris said.

On his part, Spurs manager Jose Mourinho said the incident was good for the team as it will benefit them going forward.

“Son is an amazing kid, everybody likes Son but the captain told him you have to do more and give more to the team. It’s something needed for the team to grow up – to grow up you need big personalities. When you have that reaction I had no doubts,” Mourinho added.
