Chelsea goalkeeping coach, Christophe Lollichon has said that France and Tottenham goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris is overrated.
Lollichon believes that Lloris should be replaced as France’s number one shot-stopper.
Lloris missed his country’s international friendly game against Germany on Tuesday and Paris Saint-Germain keeper, Alphonse Areola kept a clean sheet when given a chance to impress.
Lollichon said that Areola is more than good enough to be the national team’s first choice rather than Lloris.
“People live in a dream world when it comes to Lloris a bit too much, but for me Areola is above,” The Daily Mail quote Lollichon as saying.
“Against Germany, he was positionally very good and in his ability to come out. It’s the basis of all goalkeepers, but not everyone does it well. He’s pro-active in his anticipation.
“For me, he’s the best current French goalkeeper. He has all the characteristics to be France’s number one.
“The height, ability with ball in his feet, wingspan, his diving ability, footwork. He’s the most adapted to how they play.”
Lollichon recently told French radio station RMC that Areola was keen to join Chelsea before the Blues recently brought in Kepa Arrizabalaga to replace Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge.
