Hugo Lloris (TEAMtalk)

Cape Town - Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris has spoken of his esteem for Mauricio Pochettino and says his future is tied to that of the club's manager.

The Spurs duo are both reported targets for French champions Paris Saint-Germain, who haven't reached their lofty standards under new head coach Unai Emery this season.

Lloris recently penned a contract extension at White Hart Lane until 2022, while Pochettino signed a new deal in the off-season tying him to the north London outfit until 2021.

The France international has bought into what Spurs are trying to achieve and insists that the Argentine coach is central to that.

"My destiny is linked to Mauricio, it's a certainty," Lloris told Le Figaro. "He matters a lot to me.

"Our relationship goes beyond football, it's a match, and one day he will be the best manager in the world. For me he is already. His presence and our relationship are the most important elements for me.

"Tottenham is not a club that always wins, but we are trying to create something. It's not easy to fight against European monsters but it is a motivation."
