Tottenham stars to shun title celebrations
Tottenham stars Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane have today revealed that should the club prove successful in pursuit of their first title since 1961, they will avoid celebrating too much ‘just incase’.
Another impressive comeback on the weekend, this time against a resilient Swansea City, has seen Spurs move within two points of top of the table Leicester, whilst creating breathing space between themselves and arch rivals Arsenal.
Club captain Lloris played a major part in the result, pulling off a string of stunning saves to keep his side in the game, a theme prevalent throughout his time with the North London outfit.
However, despite his confident showings between the sticks, the French stopper is less cocksure off the pitch.
“Of course winning the league is something that we have spoken about, let’s not beat around the shrub.
The big mistake many teams make in today’s game is to enjoy success. We see too often, players celebrating last minute winning goals with coaches and the fans becoming delirious as a result.
Would we be happy if we win the league? Of course. Would we show we are happy? Of course. But a simple smile and some applause for the fans should suffice.”
Despite his tender years, goalscorer Harry Kane was quick to reiterate his captain’s words.
“Last thing you want is to win the league, show everyone you’re over the moon about it, then next season end up not winning it.
Lot of people have obviously spoken about the rivalry there (with Arsenal), and we’d love to get one over them, but if we do we won’t rub it in their faces and we hope the fans won’t either.
For all we know we won’t win the league again in our lifetimes, we might even lose both games to them next year, so it’s best we don’t act too happy about it if we do it this year.
We’ve all had a good laugh at the memes people have done about Szczęsny, Walcott and Wilshere, last thing we want is to end up like that.”
