By Laura O’Leary
France manager Didier Deschamps has confirmed when naming his squad that Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris will be out injured for 15 days.
Speaking to French newspaper L’Equipe, Deschamps confirmed the injury as well as how much time the Tottenham captain would miss.
The international manager revealed that Lloris tore his “adductor” and he would be “absent for a minimum of 15 days.”
The 49-year-old was forced to reveal the news when announcing his latest France squad on Thursday.
Lloris was suspected of having sustained an injury when he clashed with Sergio Ramos during Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Real Madrid.

However, it was believed that he could still make Sunday’s game against Crystal Palace and that he would simply face an fitness assessment before that game.
The injury will see the Tottenham captain not only miss Sunday’s game against Crystal Palace but the meeting with Spurs’ bitter rivals Arsenal on November 18.
Lloris could make it back for Tottenham’s next Champions League game away to Borussia Dortmund on November 21, but based on Deschamp’s reveal, the goalkeeper would be cutting it close.
The news comes on the back of Tottenham learning that Toby Alderweireld is also set to miss a couple of weeks of action due to an injury sustained in the match with Real Madrid.
Lloris has been ever present for Spurs in the Premier League this season, keeping five clean sheets out of 10 games.
