Some Tottenham fans have been sharing their excitement on social media as the club’s official Twitter account confirms that goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has resumed training following a spell on the sidelines due to a groin injury.
Lloris hasn’t played a game for Spurs since their 2-1 loss to Chelsea on 22nd February. As a result, the France international has been absent for both of Tottenham’s last two competitive games, their 3-2 loss to Wolves and their midweek FA Cup defeat to Norwich City.
However, the 33-year-old goalkeeper has now “returned to training with the squad”, according to Spurs’ official Twitter account, following the groin injury which has kept him out of action.
Lloris’ return to training has sparked delight among some Spurs supporters, who have been sharing positive reactions on social media at the news that their club captain may be set to return to first-team action soon. Read the positive reactions of some Tottenham fans to the latest injury update on the French goalkeeper in the tweets below.

What do we think?
Lloris’ recent groin injury isn’t the first injury that has kept the 33-year-old goalkeeper out of action this season. The French goalkeeper missed a total of 21 Spurs games earlier this season due to an elbow injury.
Lloris has played in just 11 of Tottenham’s 28 Premier League games so far this season, with Paulo Gazzaniga taking the injury-stricken goalkeeper’s place between the sticks for the majority of Spurs’ Premier League fixtures in his absence.
Considering that the Spurs captain has missed a considerable amount of games due to injury this season, it may be understandable as to why some Spurs fans have been sharing their excitement at the 33-year-old’s recent return to training on social media.
