Los Angeles FC (LAFC) has finalized the signing of Hugo Lloris, the accomplished French goalkeeper and 2018 World Cup winner. The 37-year-old recently terminated his contract with Tottenham Hotspur, where he served as captain for eight years.

Lloris, a key figure in France’s 2018 World Cup triumph, brings a wealth of leadership and winning experience to LAFC. Co-president and general manager John Thorrington expressed excitement, stating that Lloris’s addition marks a pivotal moment in the club’s pursuit of more trophies.

The French goalkeeper, who bid farewell to Tottenham after falling out of favor last season, will receive recognition from Spurs fans during Sunday’s Premier League match against Bournemouth. In an official interview, Lloris conveyed gratitude to the supporters, emphasizing the special place Spurs holds in his heart.

LAFC’s acquisition of Lloris follows their MLS title win in 2022 and a recent playoff final appearance. With Lloris joining the squad after the retirement of Giorgio Chiellini, the Frenchman’s seasoned presence is expected to bolster LAFC’s ambitions in the upcoming season under the guidance of manager Steve Cherundolo.
