Speaking to Le Parisien, the French goalkeeper said that he knew Spurs were coming to the end of a cycle, and so was he. "I knew that Tottenham wanted to recruit younger players, especially in my position. Summer was approaching, and I was no longer part of the plans."

Lloris also said that Ange had "told him he wouldn't play again, and he would only be a player for training". He claims to be pushed aside, and become transparent.

Lloris made his final appearance for the club in the infamous 6-1 defeat at Newcastle in April 2023, being taken off at half-time in a sad way to go out.

Despite this, his contract ran out in the summer of 2024, and he reportedly rejected offers from elsewhere after not being guaranteed a number-one spot.

The next time he was seen by any of the fans was for his farewell against AFC Bournemouth on New Year's Eve of last year after his transfer to Los Angeles FC was confirmed.

Per Wikipedia, Lloris made 447 appearances for Spurs, ranking him in eighth place in the club's all-time record appearance holders.

Although there was a clear drop-off in his last few years at the club, he was undoubtedly a serviceable player for Spurs over a prolonged period, and it's a shame that his time in North London ended the way it did.

Ideally, the Frenchman wasn't trying to call Ange out and was instead merely explaining how it all ended.
