Getting drunk before a big game is the worst possible way a captain can show his preparedness for the task ahead. 

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris was arrested for drink driving in the early hours of Friday morning ahead of the game against Manchester United on Monday.

The France goalkeeper, who skippered his country to World Cup glory earlier this summer, was stopped by police in his car in central London at around 2.20am.

He failed a roadside breathalyser test and was taken to Charing Cross Police Station, where he spent around seven hours in custody before being charged and released on bail.

The 31-year-old has been ordered to appear at Westminster magistrates court on September 11.

The Metropolitan Police said: “A man has been charged following a routine patrol stop in Gloucester Place, W1.

“Hugo Lloris, 31, of East Finchley, was charged with drink driving on Friday, 24 August.

“He has been bailed to return to Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 11 September.”

It is yet to be seen if Lloris will still be considered to stay in-between the post for Spurs at Old Trafford.
