Hugo Lloris has dismissed any suggestion that he is unhappy at Spurs and that he doesn't get on with AVB.
Lloris who is currently with the French squad for their upcoming games against Japan and Spain, insists he is happy with his move and though he understandably wants to play, he is happy with how things are going so far, as he told L'Equipe: 'About (the) rumours and what happens inside the club, everything has gone off smoothly.
'There are four keepers at a high level, the coach makes his choices, I have just been hired as part of the future project, but that project starts now. The relationship with Brad Friedel, the keepers' coach and manger are very good.
'I have not signed at Tottenham to play that [substitute] role, but I am at the disposal of the team, I respect everyone, but I came to play.
'Do I have guarantees for the future? No, I have not. The coach will make his choices. I just came into a new club so I am not here to create trouble, but rather to bring solutions.'
Not content with just looking to stir unrest, the media have also hinted that Lloris wasn't wanted by Vilas-Boas and was a pick of Daniel Levy, hence the preference for Friedel over the Frenchman, but Lloris was also quick to rubbish that suggestion as he said: 'Rumours that I am the choice of the chairman not the coach? I talked with the coach and there is no ambiguity. He told me everyone at Tottenham wanted me to come, and in England the manager has a power on that kind of things.
'It is just like when I read I should not have joined Tottenham. That never-ending football-fiction that has set around me is annoying to me. You have to put things into perspective: I just spent four weeks with Spurs and just missed three matches.'
Of course players, managers and even fans forum readers and writers lie occasionally, but after making two first team starts in a row, you would be amazed to hear anything different from Lloris, and it would be common sense to think that he and AVB are in regular (ish) discussion over his development and short to medium term career path at WHL...
