Captain of Tottenham Hugo Lloris maintains the ambition and belief to win silverware with the club.

Lloris recently marked a decade at Spurs and despite being a model of consistency during his 10 years in north London, he is yet to win a trophy there.

The closest the France international and many of his current teammates came to success was three years ago when Tottenham lost to Liverpool in League of champions final

After two seasons on the road, Spurs have returned to Europe’s elite competition after an excellent second half of the 2021-22 campaign. Antonio Contewhich saw them recruit wisely in the summer to push the talk of the club’s trophy drought – now 14 years – could soon come to an end.

Lloris said: “Yes, I’m still looking for it (the trophy) and I believe we can do it, but as I said, it will require a lot of effort, a lot of work.

“I feel and believe that we are moving in the right direction, but we know that there are many competitive clubs in England and Europe, so we have to go step by step.

“But the belief is there, that’s the most important thing and we feel we are ready to compete.

“We feel like we’re improving, but we know it’s never enough. You always have to push yourself and improve yourself and push yourself if you want to come and be successful.”

Conte’s appointment last November transformed Spurs after a lackluster period in which Mauricio Pochettino left, Jose Mourinho arrived and briefly impressed before being sacked ahead of the 2021 Carabao Cup final, and his replacement Nuno Espirito Santo lasted just five months.

After winning the Premier League and Serie A, in addition to numerous domestic trophies in his managerial career, Conte is in no mood to see Tottenham simply comparing numbers.

Lloris feels that the squad is beginning to resemble the image of their serial-winning boss.

“Obviously our manager is our main leader and I think there is a link between how the manager feels and how the team plays. I feel a great connection at the moment, but this is not the moment to do less,” insisted the 35-year-old.

“It’s time to do more, push ourselves, continue on the right path and see where we end up.” As I said before, we are only focused on the game.

“I don’t really like to talk about the past. I am more focused on the present. This is the history of the club. There are ups and downs.

“When you face difficulties, it is important how you recover. I believe the club is moving in the right direction with the help of Antonio Conte and his coaching staff, but we know there is still room for improvement.

“This is a new adventure for the club. It’s been two years without this competition and we’re all very excited to be in it, but we also have to play with ambition.”

After coming through Nice’s academy system and three seasons in Ligue 1, the game against Marseille has a special meaning for Lloris.

He added: “It’s kind of a derby in the south of France, but it’s been a long time for me! When you play in France, every time you face Marseille it’s always a big game.

“They are one of the biggest French clubs, especially in the history of Europe. This is a special place. Whether you’re French or playing for a French team, meeting Marseille is always special.”
