Lloris appears set to be stripped of the Tottenham captaincy after being charged for drink-driving in London on Friday
The 31-year-old who also captained France during period World Cup in Russia, reportedly failed a roadside breathalyser test after being pulled over by police in the early hours of Friday morning.
The goalkeeper spent the evening with Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny and Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud at the Bagatelle in Mayfair.
After his arrest, Lloris was taken to Charing Cross police station and spent around seven hours in custody before being charged and released on bail.
Lloris will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court next month.
Tottenham have a big Match on Monday, as they face Manchester United, and Lloris’ antics, as well as missing training on Friday morning, have put them in a tough position.
He must persuade Mauricio Pochettino to keep him in the side for the game, as well as that he should keep the captains armband.
The French player released an apology following the incident, in which he said:
“I wish to apologise wholeheartedly to my family, the club, my team-mates, the Coach and the entire supporters.”
“Drink-driving is totally unacceptable, I take full responsibility for my actions and it’s not the example I wish to set.”
Lloris is an immensely popular figure in the Spurs changing room, but the decision on his captaincy and starting place will be down to Pochettino.
Kane, who captained England at the World Cup, may take the armband if it comes down to it.
