During the warmup before the game against Aston Villa, Tottenham fans would’ve noticed Hugo Lloris being made to go through a very physical drill by Spurs’ goalkeeping coach Rui Barbosa.
Tottenham went into the game against Villa on the back of three consecutive defeats. Lloris didn’t do a lot wrong in those fixtures, but Barbosa wanted to make sure that he was well-drilled for the game against the Villans.
Fellow goalkeepers Pierluigi Gollini and Brandon Austin were firing balls into the box for Lloris to handle. Barbosa made the Frenchman’s life miserable by banging into him every time he came close to the ball.
